Niue

Nuclear-weapon-free state

Did not participate in TPNW negotiations

Has not yet joined TPNW

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

Niue was not able to participate in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017, as the rules of procedure limited participation to UN member states and observer states. Thus it did not vote on its adoption. However, it is free to sign and ratify or accede to the treaty.

Niue 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 negotiations.

Niue is a state party to the 1985 Treaty of Rarotonga, which established the South Pacific as a nuclear-weapon-free zone.
