Israel should ratify nuclear test ban treaty within 5 years - UN

Israel should ratify nuclear test ban treaty within 5 years - UNIsrael should ratify the nuclear test ban treaty within five years — and Iran should also ratify but the timing is uncertain, the head of the U.N. organisation established to implement the treaty, Lassina Zerbo, told Associated Press Wednesday.

He cited the impact of last year's Iran nuclear deal in the Middle East for "creating the confidence-building conditions in the region to help others to move forward."

The Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty, known as the CTBT, has 196 member states — 183 that have signed the treaty and 164 that have ratified it.

But the treaty has not entered into force because it still needs ratification by eight countries that had nuclear power reactors or research reactors when the U.N. General Assembly adopted it in 1996: the United States, China, Iran, Israel, Egypt, India, Pakistan and North Korea.
