Latest developments

The Prime Minister of Algeria, Benabderrahmane Aymane, signed a decree in June 2021 to establish a national authority to remediate former French nuclear test sites.1

Speaking in the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, Algeria said: 'Having actively participated in the process leading to its drafting and adoption, Algeria was among the first countries to sign this Treaty, and remains confident that this instrument constitutes a milestone achieved towards delegitimising nuclear weapons and achieving their total elimination.'2

Algeria co-sponsored the 2021 UN General Assembly resolution on the TPNW, which called 'upon all States that have not yet done so to sign, ratify, accept, approve or accede to the Treaty at the earliest possible date.'

Recommendations

  • Algeria should urgently ratify the TPNW.
  • Algeria should bring into force its Additional Protocol with the IAEA.
