Cuba: Signature of Treaty of Tlatelolco

State Cuba
Treaty Treaty of Tlatelolco
Action Type Signature
Depositary Government of Mexico
Date 25 March 1995

* With the following declaration:


"The Government of the Republic of Cuba declares that the obstacles which, up to the present time, have prevented the Republic of Cuba from fully acceding to the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean still exist and continue to have serious implications for Cuba's security. The only nuclear Power in this part of the world, the United States of America, is maintaining a policy of hostility against Cuba; tightening its economic, commercial and financial embargo; strengthening its campaign against our country; and continuing, by force and against the wishes of our people, its illegal occupation of part of the national territory, and even allowing its ships to pass through that area when they are carrying nuclear weapons. In the future, the solution of this problem must be considered a precondition for our country's continued adherence to this Treaty."
