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, Colombia said that it 'observes with concern that there are approximately 14 thousand nuclear warheads in the world, with the capacity to erase any trace of life on the planet, even if only a small amount of them were used.' It also highlighted that it signed the TPNW. See: bit.ly/35SsCVf.
