Australia to host first nuke talks


www.news.com.au

AUSTRALIA will host the first meeting of a new international commission aimed at eradicating the spread of atomic weapons, following a bleak past decade for the cause of nuclear disarmament.

In New York, Prime Minister Kevin Rudd and Japan's new leader, Taro Aso, officially launched the International Commission for Nuclear Non-Proliferation and Disarmament, to be co-chaired by former foreign ministers Gareth Evans and Yoriko Kawaguchi.

More talk, probably no action.


"One of the things this commission must focus really hard on doing is finding solutions that can actually work for the three elephants that are outside the room, that is India, Pakistan and Israel," Mr Evans said.


As if any of those three countries are going to listen to Australia or Japan about nuclear issues?

Why do politicians enjoy posturing, while rarely doing anything worthwhile?

I read something a few months back about Japan starting to pursue their own nuclear weapons program. It would seem hypocritical on their part to be in these talks.

It might have been a recent story on defence spy targets that you remember as it mentioned Australia's interest in Japan's nuclear program. It is important to note though that Japan has no current weapons program currently but we were interested in the future potential of such a program.
