The spread of nuclear weapons and increasing numbers of nuclear forces worldwide represents the greatest danger to mankind.
Since President Eisenhower first proposed an Open Skies Treaty with the Soviet Union, successive American presidents have sought to advance U.S. nuclear security through international treaties and agreements to reduce the dangers posed by nuclear weapons and to create strategic stability.
