Why Nuke Treaty Vital for Israel, Iran and the United States

It’s not well known that Israel, Iran and the United States have all signed a nuclear arms control treaty. It’s the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), which bans all nuclear test explosions.

Israel, Iran and the U.S. also host detection stations to make sure no country cheats this treaty.

This international monitoring system is meant to catch any country that tries to do secret nuclear tests in violation of the CTBT.
