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.
"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.
