Despite the unique character of the NPT in terms of the list of parties it includes, in the first decade of the 21st century the prospects for non-proliferation have caused increasing concerns of the global community and policy-makers in most of the world’s countries. The next stage in proliferation, provided that it gains momentum, will not only cause  exponential growth of the nuclear threat, it will make, as a result of the synergy of many factors, the use of nuclear weapons in the foreseeable future virtually inevitable. Progress towards further arms reductions and limitations may perceivably improve the situation and provide conditions and incentives for strengthening non-proliferation regime. The aim of shutting down proliferation channels may be attained through raising the effectiveness of the IAEA safeguards, improving export controls, strict formalization of the procedure of withdrawal from the Treaty and increasing its political significance, bringing into force and the conclusion of a number of multilateral treaties designed to serve as 'barriers' to violations of the Treaty and the withdrawal from it.
