in the middle east -Israel doesn’t not respond when asked about nuclear weapons -North Korea has tried to convince the rest of the world that they have nuclear weapons, but the world isn’t so sure -the club as a whole: US, Russia, UK, France, China, India, Pakistan, Israel, N Korea?? -of all these countries the US and Russia have 80-90% of the world’s nuclear weapons, this is a result of the Cold War -the p5 declared nuclear powers because of cold war competition -NPT: Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty was built to limit the spread of nuclear weapons -Finland and Ireland proposed the NPT -these countries in Europe didn’t want nuclear weapons -the NPT has 189 signatures (countries) that have signed on.

1. Non-proliferation, these countries may not distribute or give away nuclear weapons or information to any other states 2. Disarmament, the powers that have nuclear weapons should reduce their weapons and get rid of them. US and Russia have limited their numbers 3. the right to peacefully use nuclear technology, this is complex because by having nuclear energy you have the technology to make these weapons -Iran is a complex case of number 3 because there are signed onto the NPT
