As a member of the African Group in the UN, the Seychelles aligned itself with the group's statement at the 2020 UN General Assembly's High-Level Plenary Meeting to Commemorate and Promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, which welcomed the adoption of the TPNW and stated that the Treaty does not undermine the NPT but complements and strengthens it. The statement also called on all states, especially nuclear-armed and umbrella states, to sign and ratify the TPNW, and to consider the catastrophic humanitarian, environmental, and economic impacts of nuclear weapons and to dismantle and renounce these weapons of mass destruction.

- The Seychelles should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
- The Seychelles should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
