Cuba became the 185th State to sign the deal and the 169th to ratify it, which allowed it to appoint a representative as signatory.
Sanchez presented the accrediting documents to Lassina Zerbo, executive secretary of that organization, in a ceremony held in Vienna, which she attended accompanied by the third secretary of the Cuban embassy in Austria, Marlen Redondo.
In a diplomatic press release, officials ratified Cuba’s commitment to nuclear disarmament, the complete and effective prohibition of all nuclear tests and the total elimination of weapons of mass destruction, including nuclear weapons.
The Treaty is part of the international instruments related to disarmament and, once in force, will contribute to the efforts for the total, transparent and irreversible elimination of those devices.
It would thus join the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean (Treaty of Tlatelolco) and the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons.
