The 2015 Review Conference of the Parties to the 1968 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) was held on 27 April to 22 May 2015 at the United Nations Headquarters in New York.1 The president of the 2015 NPT Review Conference was Ambassador Taous Feroukhi of Algeria, representing the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM). After 20 working days, which witnessed heated discussions on nuclear disarmament and the establishment of a zone free of nuclear and other weapons of mass destruction (WMD) in the region of the Middle East, among other issues, the conference ended without any agreement on a concluding document or recommendations.2 In the early hours of the final day, the conference president circulated a draft final document as her best effort to achieve consensus on a ‘take-it-or-leave-it’ basis, noting that it had not been possible to agree on a single consensual document, and that no outcome or position of a majority or of a minority could be imposed on the collectivity, and no state party could be compelled to accept any outcome.3
