GPPAC Northeast Asia Regional Meeting in Ulaanbaatar – Civil Society Six-Party Talks “Promoting a Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone in Northeast Asia”


Adopted on 25 May 2007, Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia

We the civil society members working for conflict prevention in Northeast Asia gathered in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, 24-25 May 2007. We the participants reaffirmed our commitments made in the 2005 Tokyo Agenda and the 2006 Mt. Kumgang Action Plan, and explored further common efforts. The meeting focused on Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zones (NWFZs) in Northeast Asia and to conduct civil society forum in support of the Six-Party Talks. The Ulaanbaatar meeting was particularly meaningful, thanks to the assistance by the Mongolian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, since Mongolia itself is one of the best examples of the commitment to NWFZ.

We hereby make this statement as our common understanding on the following three issues: first, how to encourage the Six-Party Talks to move forward towards a regional mechanism for peace; second, how to establish a Northeast Asia Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone (NEA-NWFZ); and third, how to strengthen and promote the experience of Mongolia as a “single-State NWFZ.” We also welcome the progress of the Global Article 9 Campaign to Abolish War and many peace initiatives by focal points of the network. NGOs and civil society actors should be united and act together towards our common goal.

1. Supporting Six-Party Talks for a Regional Peace Mechanism

We support the Six-Party Talks as a multilateral platform to discuss ways to peaceful and permanent settlement of the nuclear issue on the Korean Peninsula. Despite the DPRK’s nuclear test, we are encouraged by the agreement of 13 February 2007. We call on the governments to implement the agreement. Not only multilateral cooperation but also bilateral cooperation between the DPRK and the US and between the DPRK and Japan should be encouraged. We also believe that development of relationships between the DPRK and the ROK is able to promote the Six-Party Talks, and the Six-Party Talks is also conducive to the cooperation between North-South Korea.

The Six-Party Talks should also, on the basis of the solution to the problems on the Korean Peninsula, aim at the further goals of creating a Northeast Asia Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone (NEA-NWFZ) and developing a greater regional peace mechanism. The process should be supported by local initiatives, such as Jeju and Okinawa being free from military bases and efforts for historical reconciliation in this region. The process should also, beyond military-security issues, be developed as a cooperative platform in the region to deal with human security, covering issues such as environment, energy and development.

We shall continue to develop GPPAC Northeast Asia process, engaging civil society representatives from the DPRK and the US.

2. Working Towards a Northeast Asia Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone (NEA-NWFZ)

We underline the importance of NWFZs as concrete steps towards nuclear disarmament. We are committed to joining the global efforts by governments, international organizations and civil society, to strengthening existing NWFZs and creating new zones. We call on the governments of nuclear-weapon States that have not done so to sign and ratify the protocols of NWFZ treaties as soon as possible.

In Northeast Asia, it is a matter of urgency to create a NWFZ. Such a zone would facilitate conflict prevention and provide the basis of a regional peace mechanism. Governments should commit themselves to working towards such a zone as an achievable goal, and consider the existing proposals.

There are many challenges to realize a NEA-NWFZ, including the question of the US nuclear deterrence that Japan and the ROK rely on; the need for disarmament measures by the nuclear-weapon States; security assurances by the nuclear-weapon States; Japan's stockpile and production of plutonium; and the need to strengthen physical protection of nuclear materials. Innovative and flexible approaches should be developed to address these challenges.

It is vital to mobilize public opinion for a “security without nuclear weapons” through civil society efforts. We can develop and promote, both individually and collectively, public awareness raising; educating policy makers; campaigns for national legislations; and studies on legal and technical aspects. As citizens of a region that experienced nuclear devastation, we are committed to taking a proactive role for a nuclear-weapon-free world.

3. Strengthening the Single-State NWFZ

We underline the importance of establishing second generation of NWFZs that are credible, clearly defined and internationally recognized in strengthening mutual trust, international peace and security. We also underline the importance of inclusive approach to the establishment of NWFZs, so as to prevent blind spots or weak links in the emerging network of NWFZs.

We believe that institutionalization of Mongolia's single-State NWFZ would be an important measure of preventive diplomacy and would enhance predictability in the region and support Mongolia’s policy of neutrality. It would also eliminate a possible blind spot in the emerging network of NWFZs.

We welcome the 2000 joint statement of the five nuclear-weapon States providing security assurances to Mongolia and call upon them to take the next logical step in fully institutionalizing the status. In this respect we welcome the Sapporo recommendation of 2001 for Mongolia and its neighbors to conclude a trilateral treaty between China, Russia and Mongolia institutionalizing Mongolia's nuclear-weapon-free status. We hope that such a treaty will be concluded in the nearest future.
