Nuclear Weapons Prohibition Treaty

The Nuclear Weapons Prohibition Treaty (abbreviated AVV, English: Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, abbreviated TPNW) is an international agreement that prohibits the development, production, testing, acquisition, storage, transport, stationing and use of nuclear weapons, as well as the threat thereof. In December 2016, the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution with a mandate to negotiate such a treaty. The first round of negotiations took place in New York in March 2017, the second in July 2017. 132 of the 124 member states took part in the first conference and 193 in the second, including Austria as a co-initiator, Switzerland, Iran and Saudi Arabia . The official and de facto nuclear powers and the NATO countries, with the exception of the Netherlands, did not take part in the negotiations.

The drafted contract was approved on July 7, 2017 with 122 votes; the Netherlands voted against, Singapore abstained. At the UN General Assembly in September 2017, 53 states initially signed. By October 24, 2020, 84 states had signed and 50 had ratified the treaty. On January 22, 2021, 90 days after the 50th ratification, the treaty entered into force ...
