Latest developments

In the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, Niger associated itself with a statement by the African Group which said: 'Given the slow progress and frustration that has characterized nuclear disarmament for so many years, the TPNW marks a watershed in the drive to rid the world of nuclear weapons. [...] It is our hope that the nuclear weapon states and those under the so-called nuclear umbrella would seize this opportunity to sign and ratify the treaty as well as pursuite the goal of a nuclear weapon free world'.1

Niger participated in the negotiation of the TPNW at the UN in New York in 2017 but was not formally registered, and thus did not vote on its adoption.

Recommendations

  • Niger should urgently ratify the TPNW.
