Latest developments

In a workshop with ICAN in September 2020, parliamentarians and other stakeholders 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.'

Recommendations

  • Comoros should urgently ratify the TPNW, and encourage other states to adhere to the Treaty.
  • Comoros should also ratify the CTBT and adhere to the BWC.
