‚ÄčIt remains hard to say at this stage whether the UN High Level Conference will lead to effective progress on nuclear disarmament. We are therefore planning to send a representative to attend the Organisational meeting of this Conference, with the aim of establishing a clearer view about the High Level Conference's aims and objectives. However the organisational meeting has been postponed once and it remains unclear if it, or the conference itself, will in fact take place in May.
