Latest developments

Speaking in the 2021 UN General Assembly's High-Level Plenary Meeting to Commemorate and Promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, Comoros said: 'Each new signature and ratification of this important legal instrument strengthens the global norm against the possession of nuclear weapons, and brings us closer to a world free from the nuclear weapons.'1

Recommendations

  • Comoros should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
  • Comoros should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
  • Comoros should adhere to the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC).
