Good News about Ratifications of the International Treaty to Prohibit Nuclear Weapons:

As a reminder, these are the countries that have SIGNED but not yet ratified the TPNW:

Algeria, Angola, Belize, Benin, Botswana, Brazil, Brunei, Cabo Verde, Cambodia, Central African Republic, Chile, Colombia, Comoros, Congo, Cote d’Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Dominican Republic, Fiji, Ghana, Grenada, Guatemala, Guinea-Bissau, Honduras, Indonesia, Ireland, Jamaica, Lesotho, Libya, Liechtenstein, Madagascar, Malawi, Malaysia, Myanmar, Namibia, Nauru, Nepal, Nigeria, Peru, Philippines, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Sao Tome and Principe, Seychelles, Tanzania, Timor-Leste, Togo, Tuvalu, Zambia

And these are the countries that have expressed support for the TPNW but haven’t yet signed or ratified it:

Afghanistan, Andorra, Argentina, Azerbaijan, Bahamas, Bahrain, Barbados, Bhutan, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Chad, Cyprus, Djibouti, Egypt, Equatorial Guinea, Eritrea, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, Haiti, Iran, Iraq, Jordan, Kenya, Kuwait, Lebanon, Liberia, Malta, Marshall Islands, Mauritania, Mauritius, Moldova, Mongolia, Morocco, Mozambique, Niger, Oman, Papua New Guinea, Qatar, Rwanda, Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Sierra Leone, Solomon Islands, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Suriname, Tonga, Tunisia, Turkmenistan, Uganda, United Arab Emirates, Uzbekistan, Yemen, Zimbabwe

As  noted earlier this week, we don’t yet know for certain whether the Non-Proliferation Treaty review conference will go ahead as planned in April/May. But let’s keep pushing our governments to complete their ratifications by the scheduled start date (27 April).

As you know, Article VI of the NPT requires all states parties to pursue negotiations on effective measures for nuclear disarmament. The TPNW is one such measure, so ratification of the TPNW is a great way for states to show their firm commitment to implementation of the NPT.

Only 15 more ratifications are needed for entry into force!
