Minister Soini congratulates ICAN but Finland does not sign the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty

Minister for Foreign Affairs Timo Soini congratulated the Nobel Peace Prize winner ICAN (Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons), but said that Finland would not sign the Nuclear Weapon Ban Treaty. One of the reasons for this is that the current nuclear weapon states will not ratify the treaty. « It is problematic that these states are not part of the agreement. Without their participation, it is difficult to proceed, » Minister Soini said. Finland has therefore decided to emphasise the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty, which aims to stop the spreading of nuclear weapons.
