Comoros ratified the TPNW and the CTBT on the same day, 19 February 2021, demonstrating how the TPNW complements and promotes the CTBT. In a workshop with ICAN in September 2020, parliamentarians and other stakeholders had discussed Comoros' ratification of the TPNW. 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, Comoros highlighted that it was one of the first countries to sign the TPNW, 'which marks an important step towards the common goal of a world without nuclear weapons.'
