Latest developments

Equatorial Guinea voted in favour of adopting the TPNW at the UN Diplomatic Conference in 2017. 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'.2

Equatorial Guinea maintains policies and practices that are compatible with all of the prohibitions in Article 1 of the TPNW, and can therefore sign and ratify or accede to the Treaty without the need for a change in conduct.

Recommendations

  • Equatorial Guinea should urgently adhere to 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.
