Should Development Of Nuclear Weapons Be Prohibited By International Agreement? PRO

October 1958
Congressional Digest;Oct58, Vol. 37 Issue 10, p248
The enhancement of the security of the United States and of the world is a fundamental purpose, and the nuclear test issue is to be judged primarily in this context. The current arms race, which is diminishing United States and world security, cannot be checked and reversed without effective controls. A nuclear test suspension with inspection and controls will be a step toward more comprehensive arms control measures. There must be a mechanism whereby the world community, can authorize future nuclear explosions for internationally approved purposes.
