Speaking in the First Committee of the 2020 UN General Assembly, Sudan said that the TPNW has a 'complementary role' to the NPT, and that Sudan had signed the Treaty and was 'undertaking an internal process to ratify it.' Sudan also called on all other states to sign and ratify the TPNW.1
In the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, Sudan 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'.2
- Sudan should urgently ratify the TPNW.
- Sudan should conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol with the IAEA.
