Vol. 26-3

September 1984

The Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America, known as the Tlatelolco Treaty, is the first - and up until now the only agreement - establishing a nuclear-weapon-free zone in an important, densely populated region of the earth. The Tlatelolco Treaty, which actually antedates the NPT, marked the culmination of a process undertaken as an act of sovereign will by the governments of the Latin American countries. It was opened for signature on 14 February 1967 and entered into force on 25 April 1969. The author gives a review of the Treaty and its history
