57th anniversary of the Tlatelolco Treaty

On the occasion of the commemoration of the 57th anniversary of the Treaty of Tlatelolco, Cuban Foreign Minister Bruno Rodríguez ratified today his country's commitment to nuclear disarmament.

Havana, Cuba.- On the social network X, Rodríguez stressed that the Treaty, together with the Proclamation of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace, expresses the will to bequeath to future generations a world free of nuclear weapons.

The Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean -known as the Treaty of Tlatelolco, Mexico- was ratified by all the countries of the region.

The purpose of this multilateral mechanism is to prohibit the testing, use, manufacture, acquisition, or deployment of this type of weaponry in this part of the planet and is considered an important precedent for the proclamation, in January 2014, of Latin America and the Caribbean as a Zone of Peace.

As stated in the preamble of the document with this treaty the Latin American and Caribbean countries seek to "contribute to putting an end to the arms race, especially nuclear weapons, and to the consolidation of a world in peace, based on the sovereign equality of States, mutual respect and good neighborhood."
