122 member states of the UN have wearied of nine nuclear-armed nations holding the world’s 190-some nations hostage by their potential for nuclear annihilation—by land, sea, or air. So in 2017 they passed the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW). The treaty will enter into force Jan. 22.
The 50th ratification of the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons on Oct. 24 gives witness that nuclear arms are weapons of mass destruction and global genocide.
On Sept. 30, Malaysia ratified the UN Treaty on Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. Malaysia was the 46th country to confirm the treaty, with Malta being the 45th.
