ICRC calls ban treaty entry into force “a victory for humanity”

October 26, 2020

In a statement following the 50th ratification of the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW), Peter Maurer, the president of the International Committee of the Red Cross, said the treaty “allows us to turn our gaze towards the future; to imagine a world freed from these inhumane weapons no longer as a distant dream, but as an actual, achievable goal….Today is a victory for humanity.”

Mr. Maurer’s full statement is on the ICRC website.
