Council Decision 2013/43/CFSP, adopted on the 22nd January 2013, tasks the EU Non-Proliferation Consortium with the organization of two closed seminars bringing together 30 to 40 governmental experts in order to facilitate the successful completion of negotiation of an ATT at the March 2013 UN Conference, on the basis of the draft Treaty text of 26th July 2012, to identify the means of bringing the Treaty swiftly into force, the best practices at both national and regional level, and the facets of international assistance with the Treaty’s implementation.
