This gathering, which wrapped up today, was the second of three sessions of the Preparatory Committee of the Parties to the Treaty on the NPT.
Participants held constructive discussions on substantive issues, such as nuclear non-proliferation, disarmament, nuclear weapon-free zones and the peaceful use of nuclear energy.
The meeting ended with the adoption of a report detailing substantive and procedural issues.
Both the third session of the Committee, to be held from 4 to 15 May 2009, and the Review Conference, from 26 April to 21 May 2010, will take place in New York.
