On Nuclear Test Ban, Toth Hopes for Obama 1-Liner, The View of Egypt Non-Static

By Matthew Russell Lee

UNITED NATIONS, September 24 -- With President Barack Obama headed to "The View" television show before delivering a speech Tuesday morning in the UN General Assembly, Inner City Press on Monday put the question of whether Obama will mention a ban on testing nuclear weapons to Tibor Toth, Executive Secretary of the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty Organization.

  Toth replied, "Personally I would wish a one liner... we will have to see." He went out, in UN-ese, that it is "robust action" that is most important. Video here, from Minute 22:15

  But where? Inner City Press also asked Toth if there had in his view been any movement in the past year toward the US ratifying the CTBT.

  Toth cited a National Academy of Science report on verifiability, saying it is an "important ingredient for the Senate to resume consideration of the Test Ban Treaty," a review he hopes will be "on the merits." Video here, from Minute 18:06.

   Inner City Press also asked him if events in the past year in Egypt made him think ratification there is any more likely. He answered obliquely, that regions -- he mixes Asia / Pacific with the Middle East -- should be viewed in a "non-static way." Ya don't say. Watch this site.
