UN Nuclear Ban Treaty conference postponed again because of Covid-19

A U.N. conference on nuclear nonproliferation due to take place in New
York from early next month was postponed again because of surging COVID-19
cases, diplomatic sources said Wednesday. The meeting to review the Treaty
on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons was scheduled to be held Jan. 4
to 28 in New York after being delayed three times from its original date in
2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The NPT, joined by 191 countries, is
the world’s most widely ratified nuclear arms control agreement. Its review
conferences involving both nuclear and non-nuclear states have been held
every five years since 1975, with the last gathering in 2015.
