Latest developments

At the 2020 UN General Assembly's High-Level Plenary Meeting to Commemorate and Promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, Algeria's Foreign Minister, Sabri Boukadom, said that 'delegitimising nuclear weapons is a necessary step to forestall the world from their danger.' He reiterated that Algeria intends to ratify the TPNW in the very near future. See: bit.ly/3lNxyjy.
