Gabon

Nuclear-weapon-free state

Voted in favour of adopting TPNW

Has not yet joined TPNW

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

While Gabon did not formally participate in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017, it voted in favour of its adoption.


Gabon voted in favour of a UN General Assembly resolution in 2019 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, Gabon voted in favour of 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”.

Gabon is a state party to the 1996 Treaty of Pelindaba, which established Africa as a nuclear-weapon-free zone.
