Campaign to acceptTreaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW)

We have heard and read in our school textbook that what happens with Japan when the U.S.A dropped two nuclear bombs on two of its states. To prevent such situations in the future UN General Assembly with other 120 countries in July 2017 approved the treaty. By back then none of the major Nuclear weapon passing countries accept it. But finally, on Friday this treaty becomes part of international law.

Not only India, but Japan also didn’t support this treaty. For your knowledge, Japan is the only sufferer of the nuclear attack in the entire history.

The executive director of the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapon Beatrice Fihn told the press that 61 countries till now had supported this treaty and hope for more. Also according to him from Friday onwards Nuclear weapons will be banned according to international law.

According to this Treaty necessitates that all endorsing nations "never under any conditions create, test, produce, fabricate, have or reserve atomic weapons or other atomic hazardous gadgets." It additionally boycotts any exchange or utilization of atomic weapons or atomic related weapons, in any circumstances and conditions.
