Havana, Cuba. Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodriguez affirmed his country’s commitment to the Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, on the occasion of the International Day Against Nuclear Tests.

Through his Twitter account, he urged the owner to urgently enter into force this document to move towards nuclear disarmament and emphasized: Cuba has repeatedly ratified its commitment to the non-proliferation of this type of weapon.

The International Day Against Nuclear Tests, proclaimed by the United Nations General Assembly, acquires even greater significance if one takes into account that contemporary atomic weapons are becoming increasingly powerful and destructive.

However, the international instrument banning such tests, the 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty, has not yet entered into force.
