Latest developments

Saint Lucia associated itself with CARICOM's statement in the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, which said: 'Although CARICOM is located in a nuclear free zone, we are not immune from the consequences of the most dangerous weapons on earth. In this regard we welcome the TPNW’s entry into force of January of 2021 and view this as an extraordinary achievement. CARICOM looks forward to engage constructively in the first meeting of state parties'.2

Recommendations

  • Saint Lucia should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
  • Saint Lucia should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
  • Saint Lucia should conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol with the IAEA.
