The EastWest Institute, in collaboration with the governments of Switzerland and New Zealand, hosted a briefing at U.N. headquarters on the recent publication, Reframing Nuclear De-Alert: Reducing the Operational Readiness of U.S. and Russian Arsenals. The briefing, chaired by U.N. High Representative for Disarmament Sergio Duarte, featured comments from retired General Eugene E. Habiger and Sergey Rogov, both of whom contributed to the report.

The seminar provided an overview of the report’s recommendations to reduce alert levels of U.S. and Russian nuclear arsenals, an essential step towards global nuclear non-proliferation and disarmament.
