TPNW supporters

Paraguay has signed the TPNW and is in compliance with all of the prohibitions in Article 1, but has not yet ratified the Treaty.

Latest developments and background

Paraguay voted yes on the UN General Assembly resolution on the TPNW in 2018, and in August 2018, the senate foreign affairs committee made a positive recommendation for ratification (https://bit.ly/2McgJ1l). No progress has been reported since then, however.

Recommendations

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