Only One Ratification Left for CANWFZ

Keep forgetting to mention that a week ago, Tajikistan’s parliament ratified the 2006 treaty establishing a nuclear-weapon-free-zone in Central Asia (CANWFZ). Tajikistan’s action follows Turkmenistan’s ratification in April of this year. (Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan have already deposited the instruments of ratification in 2007.)

This leaves “Kazakhstan”: as the sole remaining state that needs to ratify.

For more info, check out the “CANWFZ Inventory file”: and “this backgrounder”: The CNS “NWFZ Clearinghouse”: is useful too.
