Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT)

A treaty, signed in 1968 and more formally named the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT), that provides that signatory nations without nuclear weapons will not seek to build them and will accept safeguards to prevent diversion of nuclear material and technology from peaceful uses to a weapons program. States possessing nuclear weapons at the signing of the NPT agreed not to help non-nuclear states gain access to nuclear weapons, but to offer them access to peaceful nuclear technology. All states agreed to work towards the eventual elimination of nuclear weapons.
