Mozambique is the 83rd country to sign the Nuclear Weapons Prohibition Treaty promulgated by the UN in July 2017.

The treaty has already been ratified by 44 countries, 50 of which are needed for it to enter into force, declaring for the first time in history illegal and immoral nuclear weapons and preventing their construction, sale and, of course, use.

ICAN, the Campaign for the Abolition of Nuclear Weapons, has, in a tweet, congratulated the country’s authorities and, in particular, the continued commitment of local anti-nuclear militants.
