Bangor City Council has become the first Welsh Council to support the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons. The treaty came into force in January and seeks to start a process for effective nuclear disarmament and to unlock the ongoing stalemate in discussions at the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) Review Conferences. There are currently 54 states that have ratified the TPNW, including the Irish Republic, Austria, South Africa, New Zealand, Mexico and the Vatican State. A further 32 states have signed it and are in the process of ratifying it. To date over 400 towns, cities, counties and federal states have passed TPNW resolutions, including Paris, Berlin, Oslo, Barcelona, Washington DC, Sydney, Amsterdam, Bruges, Geneva, Montreal, Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
