Foreign Minister Dr. A K Abdul Momen has submitted the instrument of ratification of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons to the treaty section of the United Nations yesterday. The event has been held in the sidelines of the 74th UN General Assembly.
The treaty has been adopted in July 2017 and was opened for signature in September of the same year. Bangladesh signed the treaty on the first day of the opening and now it has been duly ratified by 32 countries. The treaty will come into force upon submission of 50th ratification.
