COMMUNIQUE ISSUED BY THE NATIONAL COORDINATION OF THE  “NO TO WAR AND NO TO NATO” COMMITTEE

We commit ourselves to ensure that Italy signs and ratifies the Prohibition on Nuclear Weapons Treaty, adopted by the United Nations

ICAN, the international coalition of non-governmental organizations honoured with the Nobel Peace Price for 2017, communicates that 243 Italian MPs have signed theICAN Parliamentary Pledge. By doing so, they undertake to push the Italian government to sign and ratify the Prohibition on Nuclear Arms Treaty adopted by the United Nations on 7 July 2017 [“the Treaty”]. 

Article 1 of Treaty provides that “Each State Party undertakes never under any circumstances to:

(a) Develop, test, produce, manufacture, otherwise acquire, possess or stockpile nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices;

(c) Receive the transfer of or control over nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices directly or indirectly;”

Article 4 of the Treaty establishes: “Each State Party that has any nuclear weapons in its territory, possessed or controlled by another State, shall ensure the prompt removal of such weapons”.

The undertaking to push the Italian government to sign and ratify the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons consequently entails, for those who signed the ICAN Parliamentary Pledge, the commitment to push for:

  •         The US B-61 nuclear bombs to be promptly removed from Italian territory and for no new US nuclear bombs nor any other nuclear arms to be stationed in Italy;
  • Italy’s exit from the group of countries within NATO that, “provide the Alliance with aircrafts fitted out to transport nuclear bombs over which the United States maintains absolute control, and personnel trained to this end”; 
  •             Italy’s exit from NATO’s Nuclear Planning Group, the legal basis for which is article 18 of the UN Treaty which permits State Parties to preserve obligations under pre-existing international agreements provided such  obligations are compatible with the Treaty.

We invite every single association and person committed to nuclear disarmament  to contact each of  the 243 MPs*,  and request them to explicitly confirm the commitments stated above (commitments that they have assumed by signing the ICAN  Parliamentary Pledge); and to give  all the support they can to  anyone that responds positively. This goal here is to enable Parliament to pass a resolution for Italy to sign and ratify the Treaty.

* This is the list published on ICAN’s website, of the Italian MPs that have signed the ICAN Parliamentary Pledge.  Their email addresses can be found in the list of MPs and Senators, on the websites of the House of Representatives and the Senate:
