Nigeria Signs Anti Nuclear Weapons Treaty At UNGA

Nigeria Signs Anti Nuclear Weapons Treaty At UNGA

But while further signatures are expected to come later in the day, no state possessing nuclear weapons, nor any country involved in a military alliance with a nuclear weapon state, is expected to sign.

Cuban Foreign Minister, Bruno Rodriguez, has signed here today the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, during the opening ceremony of the integration to the multilateral instrument.

NATO said the treaty "disregards the realities of the increasingly challenging global security environment" in the face of growing threats, particularly from Pyongyang, which recently carried out its sixth nuclear test and most powerful to date.

Disarmament campaigners hailed the treaty as an important step but most NATO members boycotted the talks to prepare the text, as did Japan - the only country to have suffered nuclear attacks, in 1945.
