ABOUT THE PRESENTATION
The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty was opened for signature twenty years ago with the hope of ending nuclear testing forever—and with it, the scourge that testing brings to downwind communities. Today, the case for the treaty is stronger than ever before, but the U.S. still needs to ratify the agreement, as do seven other nations, before it can enter into force. Learn what the treaty is, how it works, and why it is in the national security interest of the U.S.
Rose Gottemoeller is the under secretary of state for arms control and international security. In this role, Gottemoeller serves as senior advisor to the president and the secretary of state on matters of arms control and nonproliferation. She was the chief U.S. negotiator of the New Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (New START) with the Russian Federation and was responsible for its ratification process in the U.S. Senate.
