Latest developments

Georgia 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.

Speaking in the General Debate of the 2020 UN General Assembly, Georgia's Prime Minister, Giorgi Gakharia, did not touch upon the TPNW, but reflected on the need for global cooperation on common challenges, when he said: 'It has been voiced repeatedly here that all UN member states are equal, and the pandemic has made this clear; it showed us that in the face of common adversity, we must unite and use the unique capabilities of each state.'1

Recommendations

  • Georgia should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
