Margaret Beckett addresses members of the European Leadership Network (ELN)

TLG Member and former British Foreign Secretary, Margaret Beckett MP addressed members of the European Leadership Network (ELN) at a meeting on 12 November 2012 in London.


She outlined her vision of nuclear disarmament and welcomed the actions which have been taken since her well-respected speech at the Carnegie International Non-proliferation Conference in Washington DC, in 2007. In spite of these positive changes however, she said, there are many reasons for remaining concern.

Becket also called on Europe to find its own voice in the process of creating the conditions for a world free of nuclear weapons.
