CTBT Resolution in the UN First Committee

The resolution on the CTBT was adopted in the First Committee on 4 November 2013 with 175 States voting in favour. At 82, the number of lead sponsors for the resolution is larger than in any previous year.

The resolution acknowledges the establishment of the Group of Eminent Persons (GEM), which supports and complement efforts to promote the CTBT’s entry into force. Further, the Committee shares the concern of the Security Council about the nuclear tests conducted by the DPRK, recalls the relevant UNSC resolutions, and reaffirms its support for the Six-Party Talks.
