Summary

The Federated States of Micronesia has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

Micronesia has consistently voted against an annual UN General Assembly resolution since 2018 that welcomes the adoption of the treaty and calls upon all states to sign, ratify, or accede to it “at the earliest possible date”.

 

Treaty negotiations

Micronesia 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.
