“Egyptian nuclear leadership – time to realign?”

“Egyptian nuclear leadership – time to realign?”
November 19, 2009
     Kimberly Misher urges Egypt to renew its regional leadership at next year’s NPT Review Conference to promote the implementation of the 1995 Resolution on the Middle East. Arguing that stalemate in the NPT regime is hurting Egypt’s desire for a united Arab position, Misher writes that as chair of the New Agenda Coalition and the Non-Aligned Movement at the conference, Egypt should tone down its “principled” positions, such as its “impractical” stance on Israel’s nuclear status, and be more willing to work with the US. In turn, Misher urges the US to negotiate toward a middle ground on Egypt’s demands, arguing that the NPT provides the best means for preventing proliferation by Iran and other states.
