Angola Joins the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons

Angola has today become a State Party to the Chemical Weapons Convention, bringing the total number of OPCW Member States to 192.

“Angola’s accession to the Convention brings this important treaty a further step towards complete universality,” said Ambassador Ahmet Üzümcü, Director-General of the OPCW. “I hope this will encourage those countries which remain outside the Convention to join the global consensus against chemical weapons.”

Angola deposited its instrument of accession on 16 September 2015 and the Convention entered into force for it on 16 October 2015.

Non-States Parties to the Chemical Weapons Convention include South Sudan, Egypt, Israel and North Korea.
