Syria

Nuclear-weapon-free state

Has not yet joined the TPNW

Summary

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

 

Treaty negotiations

Syria participated in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017 but was absent for the vote on its adoption.

In 2016, Syria 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”.

 

Before the negotiations

Prior to the adoption of the treaty in 2017, nuclear weapons were the only weapons of mass destruction not subject to a comprehensive, globally applicable treaty prohibition. Syria supported calls in the UN General Assembly fill this “legal gap”.
