Botswana Ratifies Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty

40 down, 10 to go! Botswana has just ratified the #nuclearban treaty, and begun the countdown to the treaty’s entry into force! Botswana is the fifth African state to ratify the Treaty, and chose a very symbolic day to do so.

The Pelindaba Treaty, which declares Africa a nuclear-weapons-free-zone, entered into force 11 years ago today. What better way to honour that milestone? (Source: ICAN on Twitter)
