This open access book examines key aspects of international cooperation to enhance nuclear safety, security, safeguards, and nonproliferation, thereby assisting in development and maintenance of the verification regime and fostering progress toward a nuclear weapon-free world.
The introduction to Chapter 20 describes different viewpoints on ambiguity in nuclear security and nonproliferation as discussed by the second panel on Perspectives on Nuclear Non-Proliferation. These topics include Israel's policy of deliberate ambiguity concerning its nuclear weapons program, the issue of ambiguously defined language used in nuclear negotiations, and ambiguity in the circumstances that would elicit the use of nuclear weapons.
