John Kerry, US senator for Massachusetts | June 26, 2008
Working towards a nuclear free world is a necessity now that the cold war is over. ++ Both presidential candidates have announced they would commit the US to this goal. ++ The next president should lead the freeze on the production of material for nuclear weapons and work closely with Congress and allies to strengthen the international non-proliferation regime. ++ A nuclear fuel bank, which would make reasonably priced nuclear fuel available, would significantly increase leverage over rogue states refusing to cooperate.
