Niue

Other non-nuclear-armed states

Niue is not a member or observer of the UN and was therefore not entitled to participate in the TPNW negotiations. Niue has not yet adhered to the Treaty, but maintains policies and practices that are compliant with all of the prohibitions in Article 1 of the TPNW. Niue can therefore accede to the Treaty without making changes to existing practices or policies.

Latest developments and background

Niue is party to the South Pacific nuclear-weapon-free zone (Treaty of Rarotonga), but has not signalled whether it intends to sign and ratify the TPNW.

Recommendations

  • Niue should urgently sign and ratify the TPNW, and encourage other states to adhere to the Treaty.
