Gabon

Nuclear-weapon-free state

Has not yet joined the TPNW

Summary

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

 

National position

Treaty negotiations

While Gabon did not formally participate in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017, it was among 122 states that voted in favour of its adoption.

In 2016, Gabon 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”.
