Did not participate in the TPNW negotiations
Has not yet signed or ratified the TPNW
Uzbekistan has not yet signed or ratified the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons.
Uzbekistan did not formally participate in the negotiation of the treaty at the United Nations in New York in 2017 and thus did not vote on its adoption.
Uzbekistan voted in favour of 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”. It had abstained from voting on the same resolution in 2018.
In 2016, Uzbekistan 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”.
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. Uzbekistan supported calls in the UN General Assembly fill this “legal gap”.
Uzbekistan is a state party to the 2006 Treaty of Semipalatinsk, which established Central Asia as a nuclear-weapon-free zone.
