EU hails ratification of nuke test ban by Indonesia


17:10, December 08, 2011

JAKARTA, Dec. 8 (Xinhua) -- The European Union welcomed ratification of the nuke test ban by Indonesian parliament on Tuesday, said a press statement from the EU Representatives.

"I warmly welcome the ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear- Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) by Indonesia on Dec.6, 2011 and congratulate the Indonesian government for their achievement," said Catherine Ashton, high representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and vice-president of the EU Commission.

She said with its ratification, Indonesia confirmed its commitment to the objective of eliminating all nuclear test explosions worldwide.

Indonesia, listed in the treaty among the states whose ratification is necessary for its entry into force, is the 156th country to become a state party to the CTBT.

The European Union urged all states which had not yet signed or ratified the treaty, in particular the eight remaining states whose ratification is necessary for the entry into force of the treaty, to do so without further delay.
