Sri Lanka 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.
Sri Lanka 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.
- Sri Lanka should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
- Sri Lanka should bring into force its Additional Protocol with the IAEA. Sri Lanka should also ratify the CTBT.
