In the 2021 Universal Periodic Review conducted by the Human Rights Council, Vanuatu made recommendations to a number of states that they sign and ratify the TPNW.
Vanuatu associated itself with a statement by the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) in the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, which said: 'NAM’s state parties to the TPNW are fully committed to its implementation and look forward to the first meeting of state of parties'. The statement also reiterated NAM's 'concern at the threat to humanity posed by the continued existence of nuclear weapons as well as the lack of progress shown by nuclear-weapon states in eliminating their nuclear weapons'.2
- Vanuatu should continue to encourage other states to adhere to the TPNW.
- Vanuatu should ensure that all the TPNW obligations are implemented domestically, through legal, administrative, and other necessary measures.
