In a statement on the occasion of its ratification of the TPNW on 23 October 2020, Jamaica said: 'Ratification of the TPNW fulfills Jamaica’s international obligation under Article 6 of the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. We view the TPNW as an indispensable part of the global disarmament framework. This Treaty’s entry into force will move us closer to our objective of a total ban on the possession of certain types of weapons, an achievement which would advance our efforts to secure international peace and security.' It also reiterated its call on 'all States that have not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons to consider doing so.' See: bit.ly/2L6SR21.
- Jamaica should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the Treaty.
- Jamaica should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative and other necessary measures.
