      Bosnia-Herzegovina ratifies global treaty banning nuclear test explosions

      Released : Tuesday, November 07, 2006 9:14 AM

      VIENNA, Austria-Bosnia-Herzegovina has ratified the Comprehensive Nuclear
      Test Ban Treaty, bringing to 136 the number of nations that have done so,
      the Vienna-based organization that administers the accord said Tuesday.

      Bosnia formally notified the United Nations of its endorsement on Oct. 26,
      bringing the number of ratifying states in Eastern Europe to 21, the
      Vienna-based Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization said in a
      statement.

      The treaty, which bans all nuclear explosions, will not enter into force
      until it has been ratified by all 44 states, listed in an annex, that
      participated in a 1996 disarmament conference and have nuclear power or
      research reactors.

      Only 34 of the 44 countries have ratified the pact, the CTBT said.

      The holdouts include the United States, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and
      North Korea.
