  • Poland

    Nuclear-weapon endorser

    Did not participate in TPNW negotiations

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    Poland supports the retention and potential use of nuclear weapons on its behalf, as indicated by its endorsement of various alliance statements of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), of which it is a member.

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

    [PARTNERS] [COLLAPSE_O]

    Poland 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”.

    On the opening day of the TPNW negotiating conference in 2017, Poland joined the United States and several other states in protesting the treaty-making process.

    In 2016, Poland voted against 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”.

    In a “non-paper” sent to NATO members ahead of the vote, the United States “strongly encourage[d]” members, including Poland, 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”.

  • Ireland

    Nuclear-weapon-free state

    Voted in favour of adopting TPNW

    Has signed TPNW, but not yet ratified

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    Ireland has signed but not yet ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

    Simon Coveney, the minister for foreign affairs of Ireland, signed the treaty on 20 September 2017, describing it as a “ground-breaking treaty”. The government announced in September 2019 that it hopes to complete its ratification of the treaty “before the end of this year”.

    Ireland participated in the negotiation of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons at the United Nations in New York in 2017 and voted in favour of its adoption.

    [PARTNERS]

    [COLLAPSE_O]

    A bill to give effect to the treaty under Irish law was introduced to the Irish legislature, known as the Oireachtas, on 22 July 2019. In introducing the legislation, the minister of state, Ciarán Cannon, noted the leading role of Ireland in the process resulting in the adoption of the treaty. The Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons Bill passed all stages in Seanad Éireann on 4 December 2019.

    Ireland has promoted universal adherence to the treaty, including by co-sponsoring a UN General Assembly resolution in 2019 that calls upon all states to sign, ratify, or accede to the treaty “at the earliest possible date”.

    In its opening statement to the negotiating conference, Ireland described the moment as “a pivotal point in our international relations, a time to take stock and honour the testimony of the past, to decide what sort of present we wish to live in and what sort of legacy we wish to leave for future generations”.

    It commented that “we are not just writing a new and complementary treaty here, we are taking the opportunity to write a new history and in so doing to create a new, more stable, more secure and more equal future for all”.

    Ireland, Austria, Brazil, Mexico, Nigeria, and South Africa comprised a “core group” of states that played a leading role in bringing the negotiations about and ensuring their ultimate success. 

    In 2016, Ireland was a co-sponsor 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”.

    Ireland 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.

  • Iceland

    Nuclear-weapon endorser

    Did not participate in TPNW negotiations

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    Iceland supports the retention and potential use of nuclear weapons on its behalf, as indicated by its endorsement of various alliance statements of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO), of which it is a member.

    Iceland 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.

    [PARTNERS] [COLLAPSE_O]

    The prime minister of Iceland, Katrín Jakobsdóttir, has pledged to work for her country’s signature and ratification of the treaty. She made this commitment in September 2017, prior to assuming the office of prime minister.

    In February 2018, a group of Icelandic parliamentarians proposed a motion that the parliament of Iceland “resolves to entrust the government with ensuring that Iceland accedes to the United Nations Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons”. The matter was referred to the foreign affairs committee of the parliament.

    In a submission to the committee, the ministry of foreign affairs of Iceland indicated that it does not support the treaty. A number of organisations, including the Icelandic Red Cross, made submissions in support of the motion. It remains on the parliamentary agenda.

    Iceland 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, Iceland voted against 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”.

    In a “non-paper” sent to NATO members ahead of the vote, the United States “strongly encourage[d]” members, including Iceland, 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”.

    In the past, Iceland had called for intensified efforts to outlaw nuclear weapons in light of their unacceptable humanitarian consequences.

    Nuclear-weapon endorser: hosts nuclear weapons on its territory

    20 U.S. nuclear weapons hosted

    Did not participate in TPNW negotiations

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    Belgium is one of the five NATO states to host U.S. nuclear weapons as part of NATO's nuclear sharing agreement. The Belgian air force is assigned approximately 20 B61 nuclear bombs, which are deployed at Kleine Brogel Air Base.

    Belgium 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 64 per cent of Belgians believe that their government should sign the treaty, with 17 per cent opposed to signing and 19 per cent undecided.

    Nuclear-weapon endorser: hosts nuclear weapons on its territory

    80 U.S. nuclear weapons hosted

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    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 80 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.

    [PARTNERS] [COLLAPSE_O]:

    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”.

    Nuclear-weapon endorser: hosts nuclear weapons on its territory

    20 U.S. nuclear weapons hosted

    Participated in TPNW negotiations

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    The Netherlands is one of the five NATO states to host US nuclear weapons as part of NATO's nuclear sharing agreement. The Dutch air force is assigned approximately 20 B61 nuclear bombs, which are deployed at Volkel Air Base.

    The Netherlands has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The Netherlands participated in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017. It was also the only NATO member to participate and the only state to vote against the adoption of the treaty. 

    A public opinion poll conducted by YouGov in April 2019 found that 62 per cent of Dutch people believe that their government should sign the treaty, with 18 per cent opposed to signing and 19 per cent undecided.

    [PARTNERS] [COLLAPSE_O]

    In explaining its ‘No’ vote at the 2017 negotiating conference of the TPNW, it said: “While we cannot support this treaty, we appreciate how it has placed nuclear disarmament in the limelight and created a broad momentum for disarmament.” It also said that it considers the treaty to be “incompatible with our commitments as a NATO state”.

    In its opening statement to the negotiating conference, the Netherlands said that it could “support the concept of a legally binding instrument prohibiting nuclear weapons as an element of a nuclear-weapon-free world”.

    However, in November 2018, the Dutch parliament called on the government to re-examine the treaty and to work to increase the support for the treaty among NATO members. The parliament also sought legal advice on the legislative requirements of becoming a state party.

    In response to the parliament’s request, the Dutch foreign minister, Stef Blok, and defence minister, Ank Bijleveld, wrote in January 2019 that no changes would be needed to existing Dutch legislation if the Netherlands were to adhere to the treaty, but additional implementing legislation would be needed.

    Pressure is mounting on the government to work for the removal of US nuclear weapons deployed in Dutch territory and to sign the treaty.

    The Netherlands 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, the Netherlands abstained from voting on 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”. It was the only NATO member not to vote against the resolution.

    In a “non-paper” sent to NATO members ahead of the vote, the United States “strongly encourage[d]” members, including the Netherlands, 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”.

    Pressure from the Dutch parliament and the public appeared to have a significant bearing on the Dutch government’s decision to participate in the negotiating conference.
