Rwanda

Nuclear-weapon-free state

Has not yet joined the TPNW

Summary

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

 

National position

Rwanda has promoted universal adherence to the treaty, including by voting in favour of an annual UN General Assembly resolution since 2018 that calls upon all states to sign, ratify, or accede to the treaty “at the earliest possible date”. (It abstained from voting on the resolution in 2019.)

 

Treaty negotiations

Rwanda 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.

In 2016, Rwanda was absent for the vote on 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”.
