Statement on Russia’s decision to revoke ratification of the Comprehensive…

Australia deplores the Russian Federation’s decision to revoke its ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty. It is an affront to all who want a world without nuclear weapons. 

President Putin is once again showing his contempt for international rules and norms in pursuit of his own political objectives. His actions undermine global peace and stability.

Australia joins partners to call on the Russian Federation to reverse this course of action immediately.

With 178 ratifications, the Treaty is an essential part of the global nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation regime, with the goal of ending nuclear weapons tests permanently.

Achieving universal membership of the Treaty is fundamental to this goal.

Australia urges all countries which have not yet done so to sign and ratify the Treaty without delay.

Australia welcomes the efforts of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organisation to pursue universalisation and entry into force of the Treaty
