Nuclear-weapon endorser: hosts nuclear weapons on its territory

40 U.S. nuclear weapons hosted

Has not yet joined TPNW

Italy is one of the five NATO states to host US nuclear weapons as part of NATO's nuclear sharing agreement. The Italian Air Force is assigned approximately 40 B61 nuclear bombs, which are deployed at Aviano Air Base and Ghedi Air Base.

Italy has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. It did not participate in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017 and thus did not vote on its adoption. 

A public opinion poll conducted by YouGov in April 2019 found that 70 per cent of Italians believe that their government should sign the treaty, with 16 per cent opposed to signing and 14 per cent undecided.

:

In September 2017, the Italian parliament adopted a resolution that instructed the government “to explore the possibility” of becoming a state party to the treaty “in a way compatible with [Italy’s] NATO obligations and with the positioning of allied states”.

The minister for foreign affairs of Italy, Luigi Di Maio, has pledged to work for his country’s signature and ratification of the treaty. He made this commitment in October 2017, prior to assuming the office of minister for foreign affairs.

Italy voted against 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, Italy 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”. However, it later informed the UN secretariat that it had intended to vote against.

In a “non-paper” sent to NATO members ahead of the vote, the United States “strongly encourage[d]” members, including Italy, to vote against the resolution, “not to merely abstain”. In addition, it said that, if the treaty negotiations do commence, allies and partners should "refrain from joining them”.
