A project of Peace Boat, supported by the Global Partnership for the Prevention of Armed Conflict (GPPAC), Parliamentarians for Nuclear Non?proliferation and Disarmament (PNND) and in partnership with the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) and IKV Pax Christi was organized toward a Nuclear Weapons?Free Zone in the Middle East.

The participants affirmed that the Middle East free from nuclear weapons and other weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) is in the national security interests and the collective regional security interest of all the states in the region. It will also protect and strengthen the human security of all the peoples of the region, equally and without discrimination, enabling them to live without fear and in freedom and dignity, progressing towards peace and development. This will be an important building block towards achieving the vision of a world free of nuclear weapons and all other weapons of mass destruction.

They also affirmed that ownership of the preparatory process, the conference itself and its final outcomes lies with the peoples of the region. The lessons of history and current developments worldwide demonstrate indisputably that civil society has a decisive role to play in determining the future of the region, and ignoring this will prove disastrous.

Participants agreed unanimously that the 2012 conference in Finland should be the beginning of a time?bound negotiating process towards achieving MENWMDFZ and pledged their support for the continuation of that process beyond 2012.

At the end, they stressed the importance of universal attendance and optimum participation of all states in the region, urging that no acts of violence or belligerence should be taken that would harm or undermine the prospects of the 2012 conference.
