Traditionally anti-nuclear New Zealand is co-sponsoring the draft resolution ‘Taking forward multilateral nuclear disarmament negotiations,’ which calls for negotiations to begin next year on a treaty to prohibit nuclear weapons, and is currently working its way through the UN General Assembly First Committee on Disarmament and International Security.

The text of the draft resolution is available on the iCAN Aotearoa New Zealand site, with additional background information here.

New Zealand’s statements at the First Committee are being added to the iCAN Aotearoa New Zealand web site as they soon as they are received.
