"On October 24, 2020, the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons reached the required 50 states parties for its entry into force, after Honduras ratified just one day afterJamaica and Nauru submitted their ratifications. In 90 days, the treaty will enter into force, cementing a categorical ban on nuclear weapons, 75 years after their first use."

A historic milestone has been reached in the development of the global norm against nuclear weapons. On the 22nd of January 2021, nuclear weapons will be prohibited.
