The Treaty was a landmark in interntional relations history when it entered into force in 1970. It was the first international commitment to disarmament. The objective today is to move further towards nuclear disarmament, promote cooperation in the peaceful uses of nuclear energy, and avoid the spread of nuclear weapons armament and technology. A review conference has been held every five years since the implementation of the Treaty.
