Official Title

Recognizing the vital role of the Proliferation Security Initiative in preventing the spread of weapons of mass destruction.

Summary

Recognizes the Proliferation Strategy Initiative's (PSI) success in enhancing the ability of participating countries to interdict the shipment of nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, and their means of delivery. Congratulates the Republic of Korea for its decision to participate in the PSI to counter the threat posed by the North Korean regime. Urges: (1) President Obama to further cooperation to stop the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction; and (2) countries not yet participating in the PSI, especially China, to fully cooperate with PSI countries.
