North Korea withdrew from the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in 2003. Iran is a signatory but has been repeatedly found non-compliant. A total of 191 states have joined the treaty–the most of any arms limitation agreement and a testament to the treaty’s global significance.

Join Ambassador Christopher Hill for a discussion on the North Korean and Iranian motivations and efforts to arm themselves with nuclear weapons. Ambassador Hill will also address U.S. efforts to prevent both countries from becoming nuclear-weapon states.

Our virtual programs are graciously sponsored by Alpine Bank. Colorado Humanities and the National Endowment for the Humanities have also provided funding as part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act economic stabilization plan of 2020.
