Presidential Statement from Barack Obama to the 2009 Carnegie International Nonproliferation Conference
Barack Obama, Presidential Statement
It is a pleasure to send my greetings to the 2009 Carnegie International Nonproliferation Conference.
As I said in Prague, the future of nuclear weapons in the 21st century is fundamental to the peace and security of the world. The spread of nuclear weapons -- and the prospect of nuclear terrorism -- has increased the danger to our people and to the global nonproliferation regime. We have a security and moral responsibility to act. That is why this is a top priority for my Administration and why your work at this conference is so important to our collective effort.
Editor's Note: Full transcripts, audio, video, and other materials from this year's Carnegie International Nonproliferation Conference are now available.
