    Nuclear-armed state

    6,185 nuclear weapons

    1,030 nuclear tests

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    The United States can launch its nuclear weapons from missiles, submarines, and airplanes. Its intercontinental ballistic missiles are based in silos in Montana, North Dakota and Wyoming. It was the only country to use two nuclear weapons in war, on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. It also conducted 1,030 nuclear tests between 1945 and 1992, most of which were conducted in Nevada and the Marshall Islands, but some of which were conducted over the Malden and Kiritimati islands, Alaska, Colorado, Mississippi, New Mexico and over the Atlantic Ocean.

    The United States did not participate in the negotiations of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and has not yet signed or ratified it.

    The United States 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”.

    The United States 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, the United States 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”.

    The United States actively discouraged other states from supporting the resolution.

    In a “non-paper” sent to members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation (NATO) ahead of the vote, the United States “strongly encourage[d]” members 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”.

  • France

    Nuclear-armed state

    300 nuclear weapons

    210 nuclear tests

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    France’s nuclear weapons can be launched from submarines or from missiles dropped from airplanes. France’s submarines that can launch nuclear weapons are based at the Île Longue peninsula, south of Brest in the Brittany region of France. France conducted a total of 210 nuclear tests in Algeria and French Polynesia from 1960-1996.

    France did not participate in the negotiations of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and has not yet signed or ratified it.

    A public opinion poll conducted by IFOP in June 2018 found that 67 per cent of French people believe that their government should sign the treaty, with 33 per cent opposed to signing. 

    [PARTNERS]

    [COLLAPSE_O]

    The French Military Planning Law for 2019-2025 allocated €37 billion to upgrade French nuclear forces and allocated €23.3 billion for this purpose from 2014-2019.

    In July 2018, the foreign affairs committee of the French national assembly recommended that the government “mitigate its criticism” of the treaty “to show that we understand and take into account the concerns of states and their desire for more balanced global governance”.

    France 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, it joined the United States and several other states in protesting the treaty-making process.

    In 2016, France 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”.

    France actively discouraged other states, in particular its former colonies, from supporting the resolution.

  • United Kingdom

    Nuclear-armed state

    200 nuclear weapons

    45 nuclear tests

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    The United Kingdom’s nuclear weapons would be launched from its nuclear-capable submarines which are based off the coast of Scotland at Her Majesty’s Naval Base. One submarine is usually on patrol.

    The United Kingdom tested 45 nuclear weapons from 1952-1991. From 1952 to 1963, the British government conducted 12 nuclear test explosions and up to 600 so-called “minor trials” in the South Australian desert and off the Western Australian coast. Between 1957 and 1962, the United Kingdom and the United States tested 33 nuclear weapons at Malden and Kiritimati islands in Kiribati.

    The United Kingdom did not participate in the negotiations of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons and has not yet signed or ratified it.

    A public opinion poll conducted by YouGov in March 2017 found that 75 per cent of British people believed that their government should participate in the treaty negotiations, with 9 per cent opposed to participating and 16 per cent undecided.

    [PARTNERS]

    [COLLAPSE_O]

    The leader of the opposition Labour Party, Jeremy Corbyn, said in August 2017 that, with the recent adoption of the treaty by a majority of the world’s governments, “historic progress” was made towards “a world that genuinely meets the security needs of its people”.

    The United Kingdom 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, it joined the United States and several other states in protesting the treaty-making process.

    In 2016, the United Kingdom 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”.

  • Spain

    Nuclear-weapon endorser

    Did not participate in TPNW negotiations

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    Spain 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.

    Spain 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]

    In September 2018, the Spanish government, as part of a deal with the political party Podemos, committed to sign the treaty. The deal was struck between the Spanish prime minister, Pedro Sanchez, and the leader of Podemos, Pablo Iglesias. However, no action was ultimately taken.

    Several Spanish cities have urged the Spanish government to sign and ratify the treaty.

    Spain 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, Spain 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 Sapin, 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”.

  • Slovakia

    Nuclear-weapon endorser

    Did not participate in TPNW negotiations

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    Slovakia 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.

    Slovakia 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]

    Slovakia 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, Slovakia 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 Slovakia, 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”.

  • Norway

    Nuclear-weapon endorser

    Did not participate in TPNW negotiations

    Has not yet joined TPNW

    [HIGHLIGHTS]

    Norway 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.

    Norway did not participate in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017 and did not vote on its adoption. Norway has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.

    A public opinion poll conducted by Respons Analyse in March 2019 found that 78 per cent of Norwegians believe that their government should sign and ratify the treaty.

    [PARTNERS] [COLLAPSE_O]

    In February 2018, the Norwegian parliament asked the Norwegian government to review the consequences of becoming a state party to the treaty. In its report, the government said that Norway could not join the treaty “without coming into conflict with our membership in NATO”.

    Several Norwegian cities, including Oslo, have called on the Norwegian government to sign and ratify the treaty. 

    Norway 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, Norway 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 Norway, 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 March 2013, the Norwegian government hosted in Oslo the first in a series of major intergovernmental conferences on the “humanitarian impact of nuclear weapons”, which helped pave the way to the treaty negotiations in 2017.

    The goal of negotiating a new legal instrument to outlaw nuclear weapons was a key aim of the Norwegian centre–left coalition government from 2010 until its defeat at the parliamentary election in September 2013.
