Latest developments

Burundi maintains policies and practices that are compatible with all of the prohibitions in Article 1 of the TPNW, and can therefore sign and ratify or accede to the Treaty without the need for a change in conduct.

Burundi attended as an observer the First Meeting of States Parties to the TPNW (1MSP) in Vienna in June 2022.

Recommendations

  • Burundi should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
