Chapter 3 focuses on the cooperation between the US and the European countries. While US cooperation with the European countries happened primarily within the framework of the Western Europe and Others Group (WEOG) of the UN General Assembly, this cooperation allowed the US to leverage the EU’s economic power in its neighborhood to the advancement of its own goal of furthering nuclear nonproliferation. Because the EU supported indefinite extension on its own, teaming up with the EU allowed the US to advance its interests more efficiently. On the one hand, the chapter focuses on the negotiations between the US and the European countries (sometimes joined by Russia), especially within the framework of the WEOG. On the other hand, it looks at the activities of the European countries, primarily concerning the démarches, threats, and inducements toward the third countries.
