Russia will not join the Nuclear Weapons Ban Treaty, although it “shares the task of building a nuclear-free world,” Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said at a meeting of the UN Security Council on January 18.
In his opinion, it is necessary to get rid of nuclear weapons “not by such unilateral methods,” the website of the Foreign Ministry said.
According to the Nuclear Weapons Convention, it is possible to completely eliminate nuclear weapons only in the context of general and complete disarmament, provided that equal and indivisible security for all, including those who possess nuclear weapons, was pointed out by the minister. In his view, the provisions of the treaty submitted for signature are far from these principles. The document does not take into account all the factors that affect strategic stability.
On July 7, 2017, the UNZ was signed at the UN headquarters. At the moment, the document was signed by representatives of 53 countries, ratified three – Guyana, Thailand and the Vatican. Not a single major nuclear power has signed it yet.
