The threat of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) terrorism magnifies the significance of sound multilateral policies to U.S. national security.
This hearing will examine multilateral arms control regimes within the context of
global WMD terrorism from state and non-state actors. Administration witnesses will address the effectiveness of current non-proliferation regimes in preventing or delaying proliferation of WMD and the steps the United States is taking to increase these regimes effectiveness.
