Marty Natalegawa, Indonesia’s Foreign Minister, on December 1 attended and addressed a meeting of parliamentary Commission I. The Minister affirmed that the time has come for Indonesia to ratify the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.
“For Indonesia, the waiting time is over and the time to act has arrived. It is no longer appropriate for Indonesia to merely wait,” said Natalegawa according to state news agency Antara.
Indonesia is one of the remaining nine Annex II states, the ratification of which is a prerequisite for the Treaty to enter into force.
