Moon appeals to India, 7 others to ratify N-test ban
UN chief Ban Ki-moon has appealed to India, China and the US along with five other nations to ratify the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty, saying the international community should complete the ‘unfinished business’ of achieving a world free of atomic weapons. In his message for the International Day against Nuclear Tests, to be observed on 29 August, Ban said that ending all nuclear tests will lead to a safer and more prosperous future.

‘I wish to appeal particularly to citizens of those States that have not yet ratified the Comprehensive Nuclear Test-Ban Treaty, especially the eight remaining Annex 2 States whose ratification is required for the Treaty’s entry into force: China, Korea, Egypt, India, Iran, Israel, Pakistan and US.
