Our Solution

We believe that any treaty solution around the WMDFZ will, by necessity, require an agency to oversee implementation, verification and compliance.  In this context, we foresee the need for a Middle East Treaty Organization (METO), established through the provisions of a WMDFZ Treaty.  In a proactive effort to turn the vision of the zone into reality, a core group of civil society individuals from the region, with international experts and diplomats, have come together (initially under BASIC’s facilitation) to start work on a Draft Treaty leading to METO.

The aim is to encourage states and civil society to imagine what can be achieved when we turn our minds and imagination to the possible.
