• Biomedical Community and the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention

      Dando, Malcolm R.; Whitby, Simon M. (2001)

The crisis was precipitated during the current round of talks, now in its final week in Geneva, when the US, alone amongst the negotiating States, rejected the text of a protocol that has taken six and a half years to negotiate.
