Latest developments

Libya also associated itself with a statement by the Arab Group in the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, which welcomed the TPNW and said the Treaty 'places nuclear weapons in its logical place as weapons whose possession or use or threat of use is a violation of the most basic rules of international humanitarian law in addition to the fact that it threatens international peace and security'.2

Recommendations

  • Libya should urgently ratify the TPNW.
