Latest developments

In First Committee of the 2020 UN General Assembly, Sudan said the TPNW had a 'complementary role' to the NPT, and that Sudan has signed the Treaty and is 'undertaking an internal process to ratify it.' Sudan also called on all other states to sign and ratify the TPNW. See: bit.ly/3m3pjA4.

Recommendations

  • Sudan should urgently ratify the TPNW, and continue to encourage other states to adhere to the Treaty.
  • Sudan should conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol (AP) with the IAEA.
