The briefing marked the 25th anniversary of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty’s opening for signature in September 1996.

Ambassador Quy, Vietnam’s Permanent Representative to the UN, attributed the Treaty’s achievements to joint efforts by the international community, and noted that Vietnam is a party to the Test Ban Treaty, the Non‑Proliferation Treaty, and the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, as well as the Treaty on the Southeast Asia Nuclear Weapon‑Free Zone, also called the Treaty of Bangkok.
Expressing support for the inalienable right of States to research, develop, produce, and use nuclear energy for peaceful purposes, Mr. Quy called for further assistance to developing countries in using data from the international monitoring system for other socio-economic development applications.
