As a senior diplomat and U.S. government lawyer, Ambassador Graham helped to shape, negotiate, and secure U.S. ratification of international security cornerstones. He also served as general counsel of the U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency for fifteen years. As President Clinton's special representative for arms control, non-proliferation, and disarmament, he led the successful U.S. government effort to indefinitely extend the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty. In 1996, he led a worldwide effort to successfully support the conclusion of the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty negotiations.
