ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the nuclear nonproliferation pact as the first step towards disarmament. The pact was signed on July 2, 1968 by Great Britain, Soviet Union and the U.S. It states that the pact will not immediately prevent the spread of nuclear weapons but it helps the U.S. and the Soviet Union to recognize their common interest in putting a halt to the arms race. However, it is noted that some nations like West Germany, India, Japan and Israel refused to sign.
