Speech by the President of the Mexican Delegation, Ambassador Lic. Alfonso García Robles, Undersecretary of Foreign Relations, in the General Debate of the First Committee on the Theme 'The Non-proliferation of Nuclear Weapons'

Alfonso Garcia Robles used his address to describe the progress in the negotiations of the Treaty of Tlatelolco. For him, this treaty included the most ambitious definition of nuclear weapons compared to existing nuclear governance texts. Another innovation was the reliance on the International Atomic Energy Agency’s safeguard system to monitor compliance. Garcia Robles also explained that Latin American delegations were almost in consensus about the Treaty of Tlatelolco text except for a couple of issues. Countries did not agree on defining the territory where the treaty would apply and when it would enter into force. The Ambassador also took this opportunity to explain the Latin American efforts to obtain negative security assurances from China. Moreover, he reminded delegates that the success of the NPT would depend on balancing obligations for nuclear and non-nuclear-weapon states. Mexican representatives argued that it was necessary to include more ambitious disarmament goals in the draft of the NPT. However, they rejected proposals to condition the approval of the NPT on the existence of concrete steps toward disarmament

'Agreement Between the Government of [Nation] and the International Atomic Energy Agency about the Application of Safeguards in Accordance with the NPT'

This agreement details the responsibilities of governments party to the NPT and the IAEA in accordance with the Treaty, including transparent and prompt notifications to the IAEA about any nuclear materials, facilities, and transfers of nuclear materials within a state's territory. Transparency about nuclear materials is reciprocal, with the NPT obligating the IAEA to send an inventory list to the governments every 12 months or upon request. Additionally, this document details safeguard procedures, including IAEA inspections (and the responsibility of governments to provide inspectors with the necessary visas). This document also states that the present agreement will be in force indefinitely, and a state can cease to abide by its terms if it ceases to be a participant in the NPT per Article X on the right of states to withdraw.
