High Level Roundtable in Costa Rica


On March 19, 1999, LCNP Board member Jonathan Granoff and Alyn Ware participated in a roundtable of experts in San Josť, Costa Rica to discuss the Model Nuclear Weapons Convention and prospects for progress on achieving an actual nuclear weapons convention. The roundtable was organized by Dr. Carlos Vargas, who represented Costa Rica in the World Court hearings on the legality of the threat or use of nuclear weapons, and included Sr. Rodrigo Carazo, former President of Costa Rica, and H.E. Melvin Saenz, former Alternate Ambassador to the United Nations. The roundtable formulated a statement to the Costa Rican government with a number of recommendations for promoting the MNWC at national, regional and international levels.
