Abstract:

Since the 1960s, the United States has been engaged in nuclear arms control agreements related to the threat posed by nuclear weapons and has achieved drastic reductions in the number of nuclear weapons deployed around the globe. The Treaty for the Nonproliferation of Nuclear Weapons NPT has been the most widely accepted and most enduring agreement to influence nuclear arms related issues. The NPT established the basis for continued negotiations toward nuclear disarmament. It also signaled a shift in international norms to prevent the proliferation of nuclear weapons beyond the five recognized nuclear weapons states of China, France, the Russian Federation formerly Soviet Union, United Kingdom, and the United States a collective also known as the P5.
