Nauru

Other non-nuclear-armed states

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

Latest developments and background
