US boycotted nuclear test ban treaty
Kimberly Bennett at 12:00 AM ET

On September 23, 2005, the US completed a three day boycott of a UN conference aimed at encouraging countries to sign the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty [PDF]. The treaty was adopted on September 10, 1996, but has yet to be entered into force, as not all nuclear-able states have ratified it. India, Pakistan, North Korea, Vietnam and Iran joined the US in boycotting the UN talks. The US signed the treaty but has not ratified it. Debate surrounding the US stance on the treaty continues to be an issue in domestic and international politics.
