Practice Relating to Nuclear Weapons
In 1996, during a debate in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, the representative of Nepal stated:
The Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) was adopted and opened for signature last month. We believe that these events have brought us another step closer to our dream of a nuclear-weapon-free world. In addition, my country, Nepal, signed the Treaty, demonstrating once again its commitment to nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation.
My delegation believes that the adoption of a treaty on a time-bound elimination of nuclear weapons is possible. We hope that the necessary steps in this direction will be taken, particularly by the nuclear-weapon States.
