Latest developments

In a statement to the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, Honduras welcomed the TPNW's entry into force as a 'historic moment', and said that the task now is to universalise the Treaty 'in pursuit of peace and security for all humanity and the sustainability of the planet'.1

Honduras 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

Recommendations

  • Honduras should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
  • Honduras should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
