On their way back from the international conference on nuclear disarmament in Oslo, Norway, George Shultz and Sam Nunn addressed a meeting of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Global Security and Non-Proliferation, clerked by BASIC.

They outlined for a group of assembled Parliamentarians - with an audience including several former Foreign Secretaries and cabinet members - the importance of taking disarmament seriously. They warned that the tables were turning in terms of nuclear dangers, and the United States and United Kingdom were fast becoming the most likely targets of any future nuclear strike (particularly from terrorism). They said that the balance of security and danger mean that governments need to cooperate more closely in achieving cuts.
