Tuvalu was one of the co-sponsors of the 2021 UN General Assembly resolution on the TPNW, which called 'upon all States that have not yet done so to sign, ratify, accept, approve or accede to the Treaty at the earliest possible date'.2
In the First Committee of the 2020 UN General Assembly, Tuvalu said that it 'stands in solidarity with the victims of nuclear weapon use and testing, including in the Pacific' and that it joined the TPNW 'because it does not want history to repeat itself.'3
- Tuvalu should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
- Tuvalu should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
- Tuvalu should conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol with the IAEA, and upgrade to a Modified Small Quantities Protocol. Tuvalu should adhere to the BWC.
