At the Tenth Review Conference of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) in August 2022, Chile welcomed the TPNW’s entry into force and ‘very successful’ 1MSP, describing the Treaty as ‘an instrument that complements and strengthens the implementation and credibility of the NPT’. It called on all states to adhere to the TPNW.3 In a closing statement to the NPT Review Conference, Chile and 64 other TPNW supporters urged ‘all states committed to attain and maintain a world without nuclear weapons to join the TPNW without delay’.4

- Chile should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the Treaty.
- Chile should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
