Key nuclear weapons campaign aplauds Kevin Rudds initiative. Professor John Langmore of International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons states "Rudd's Non-Proliferation and Disarmament Commission is neither rash nor another talk-fest.

"Re-engaging diplomatically has been part of ALP policy for some time, and this Commission is a timely and welcomed initiative by many working in this field.

"The solutions are already clear - and Gareth Evans was directly involved in both the Canberra Commission and the Blix Commission that formulated them.

"This Commission will provide the opportunity for refinement, clarification and development of a process for consideration of these ideas. ICAN Australia holds a vision of a nuclear weapons free world and will suggesting strategies to this Commission for making this a reality" he concluded.
