An international conference on nuclear weapons appointed a special representative to meet with Israel in an attempt to convince the Jewish state to sign the nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. The appointment, reportedly at Egypt’s urging, came at the end of a month-long conference on the 30-year-old treaty, which seeks to limit nuclear weapons. Israel, Pakistan, India and Cuba are the only countries that have not signed the treaty.
