RFI Debate — Nuclear Issues in Africa


Why is the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty still not in force? What’s stopping this treaty, which was adopted in 1996, and already ratified by 153 states from coming into force? Which states refuse to ratify it, and for what reasons? As Africa celebrates 50 years of independence, these types of questions are increasingly far-reaching.

In this debate, Alain Foka of Radio France Internationale (RFI), tackles these questions by hosting the Executive Secretary of the CTBTO, Lassina Zerbo, Ambassador Lotfi Bouchaara, the Ambassador of Morocco to Austria, and Michelle Ndiaye, the Director of the Peace and Security Program in Africa (APSP).

To hear these experts analyse the current situation on the African continent vis-a-vis international security, and offer their outlook of nuclear issues on the continent, click here to listen to the full interview in French.
