FAS Policy Statement on Arms Limitation

April 1957
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Apr1957, Vol. 13 Issue 4, p138
The article provides views on arms limitation or disarmament, from the Federation of American Scientists (FAS), a nonprofit organization organized by scientists in the U.S. The Council of the FAS has urged the Administration to search more programs or proposals on nuclear weapons tests that would not hinder the development of weaponry for use as defense in a surprise attack. The Council suggested that the United Nations monitoring agency will be the one to monitor the program without giving inspectors in national boundaries free access to arms control.
