Latest developments

Saint Kitts and Nevis ratified the TPNW on 9 August 2020, 75 years after the United States dropped an atomic bomb on the Japanese city of Nagasaki, to honour the victims and survivors of the attack. On the occasion, Mark Brantley, the Foreign Minister of Saint Kitts and Nevis, said: 'The bombing of Nagasaki was the apogee of human cruelty and inhumanity. As a small nation committed to global peace, Saint Kitts and Nevis can see no useful purpose for nuclear armaments in today’s world. May all nations work towards peace and mutual respect for all mankind.' See: bit.ly/2UYmlB8.

Recommendations

  • Saint Kitts and Nevis should encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
  • Saint Kitts and Nevis should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative and other necessary measures.
