On 2 July 2014 the TLG hosted a meeting in the UK Parliament with Austrian Ambassador Alexander Kmentt who addressed MPs, Peers and civil society representatives. The event was chaired by TLG Chairman, Alistair Burt MP, and was organised in partnership with the APPG on Global Security & Non Proliferation, the APPG on the United Nations and the European Leadership Network.
As Director for Disarmament at the Arms Control and Non-Proliferation division at the Austrian Foreign Ministry, the Ambassador spoke to parliamentarians on the Austrian government’s efforts to host the 3rd International Conference on the Humanitarian Impacts of Nuclear Weapons. The conference, due to take place in Vienna in December 2014, aims bring together governments and civil society representatives from both nuclear and non-nuclear states to “strengthen the global nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation regime and to contribute to the growing momentum to firmly anchor the humanitarian imperative in all global efforts dealing with nuclear weapons and nuclear disarmament.”
