Micronesia

State with nuclear-free security policy

Micronesia did not participate in the TPNW negotiations in 2017 and has not adhered to the Treaty. Micronesia maintains policies and practices that are compliant with all of the prohibitions in Article 1 of the Treaty, and can therefore sign and ratify it without making changes to existing practices or policies.

Recommendations

  • Micronesia should urgently sign and ratify the TPNW, and encourage other states to adhere to the Treaty.
  • Micronesia should bring into force its Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement (CSA) with the IAEA and conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol (AP). Micronesia should also adhere to the BWC.
