Latest developments

Equatorial Guinea also ratified the CTBT, the day before it signed the TPNW.

In 2021, Equatorial Guinea was one of the co-sponsors of the 2021 UN General Assembly resolution on the TPNW, which called 'upon all States that have not yet done so to sign, ratify, accept, approve or accede to the Treaty at the earliest possible date'.1

Recommendations

  • Equatorial Guinea should urgently ratify the TPNW.
  • Equatorial Guinea should bring into force its Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement with the IAEA and conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol . Equatorial Guinea should also ratify the CTBT.
