Armenia

Nuclear-weapon-free state

Participated in TPNW negotiations

Has not yet joined TPNW

Armenia has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Armenia participated in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017 but was absent for the vote on its adoption.


It abstained from voting on a UN General Assembly resolution in 2018 that welcomed the adoption of the treaty and 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”.

In 2016, Armenia abstained from voting on the UN General Assembly resolution that established the formal mandate for states to commence the negotiations in 2017 on “a legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons, leading towards their total elimination”.
