Latest developments

At the Tenth Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in August 2022, Côte d’Ivoire called for ‘universal adherence’ to the TPNW and welcomed the successful convening of the 1MSP, including ‘the adoption of an ambitious action plan for the total elimination of nuclear weapons’.1

Marking the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons on 26 September 2022, the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Côte d’Ivoire, Kandia Camara, said that ‘the most immediate and sure way towards a tangible and irreversible elimination of nuclear weapons remains, without question, the [TPNW] and its universalisation’. ‘The success of the First Meeting of States Parties, last June, remains one of the rare reasons for satisfaction, in terms of nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, recorded during this year … My delegation would therefore like to launch a strong appeal to all states which have not yet done so to accede to this Treaty without delay, in particular the states possessing nuclear weapons,’ said the Minister.2

In the First Committee of the UN General Assembly in October 2022, Côte d'Ivoire said that, as one of the first states to sign the TPNW in 2017, it ‘is honoured to actively contribute to the promotion of its universalisation and its implementation’.3


  • Côte d’Ivoire should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
