Kono seeks early CTBT ratification

WASHINGTON (Jiji Press) — Foreign Minister Taro Kono requested Thursday the United States’ early ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, or CTBT.“We hope the United States will take a positive approach such as an early ratification,” Kono said in talks with U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.


Tillerson did not directly comment on the treaty but agreed with Kono that their countries will cooperate to achieve nuclear nonproliferation. The CTBT is yet to take effect because some signatory countries, including the United States, have not ratified it.
