Somalia 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 2021 UN General Assembly, Somalia associated itself with a statement by the African Group which said: 'Given the slow progress and frustration that has characterized nuclear disarmament for so many years, the TPNW marks a watershed in the drive to rid the world of nuclear weapons. [...] It is our hope that the nuclear weapon states and those under the so-called nuclear umbrella would seize this opportunity to sign and ratify the treaty as well as pursue the goal of a nuclear weapon free world'.1
- Somalia should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
- Somalia should conclude and bring into force a Comprehensive Safeguards Agreement and an Additional Protocol with the IAEA. Somalia should also sign and ratify the CTBT, and ratify the BWC.
