Djibouti

Nuclear-weapon-free state

Has not yet joined the TPNW

Summary

Djibouti has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW).

 

Universalisation

From 2018 to 2020, Djibouti voted in favour of an annual UN General Assembly resolution that calls upon all states to sign, ratify, or accede to the TPNW “at the earliest possible date”. However, in 2021 it abstained from voting on the resolution.

 

TPNW negotiations

Djibouti participated in the negotiation of the TPNW at the United Nations in New York in 2017 and was among 122 states that voted in favour of its adoption.

In 2016, Djibouti voted in favour of the UN General Assembly resolution that established the formal mandate for states to commence negotiations on “a legally binding instrument to prohibit nuclear weapons, leading towards their total elimination”.

 

Before the negotiations

Djibouti was among 127 states that endorsed a “humanitarian pledge” in 2015–16 to cooperate “in efforts to stigmatise, prohibit, and eliminate nuclear weapons”. The pledge was instrumental in building momentum and support for convening the TPNW negotiations.
