UN nuclear test ban chief wants to bring Treaty into force 

In his first UN News interview, the new head of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) notes that prior to 1996, when the Treaty opened for signature, around 2,000 nuclear tests were conducted, but since then, only three countries have crossed the line - only one of those, this century.  

Robert Floyd spoke in New York to UN News’s Alexandre Soares, who started by asking him how CTBTO helps make the world a safer place.
