Latest developments

Kyrgyzstan 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.

On behalf of the states parties to the nuclear-weapon-free zone treaty in Central Asia, Kyrgyzstan delivered a statement in the First Committee of the 2020 UN General Assembly, where it stressed that 'for the states of Central Asia, the establishment of a zone was a practical necessity, driven by the need to ensure that the people of our region will never again suffer the consequences of a nuclear arms race.'1

Recommendations

  • Kyrgyzstan should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
  • Kyrgyzstan should upgrade to a Modified Small Quantities Protocol with the IAEA.
