Latest developments

Senegal voted in favour of adopting the TPNW at the UN Diplomatic Conference in 2017 and has consistently voted in favour of the annual UN General Assembly resolutions on the Treaty, including in 2021, when it was also a co-sponsor of the resolution.

Senegal maintains policies and practices that are compatible with all of the prohibitions in Article 1 of the TPNW, and can therefore sign and ratify or accede to the Treaty without the need for a change in conduct.

In the First Committee of the 2020 UN General Assembly, Senegal reiterated its commitment to preservation of the NPT but also to the entry into force of the TPNW and CTBT and added that for these to be effective, nuclear-armed states must act.2

Recommendations

  • Senegal should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
