In the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, Malaysia pledged to 'continue its constructive engagement' in the lead-up to the First Meeting of States Parties in 2022.2 It also called 'on all States to become Party to the TPNW as a manifestation of their commitment towards nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation, and, more importantly, for a safer and secure world'.3
Malaysia 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'.4

- Malaysia should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
