      Vienna­ Bosnia-Herzegovina is the 136th country to ratify the global ban on
      nuclear testing, the Vienna-based Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization
      (CTBTO) said Tuesday. Bosnia formally deposited the ratification documents
      with the United Nations on October 26, to become the 21st nation in Eastern
      European region to ratify the treaty.

      The treaty, which bans all nuclear weapons tests and nuclear- related
      explosions has been signed by 176 nations and ratified by 136.

      The test ban treaty will only enter into force if ratified by 44 listed
      nations ­ all nuclear weapons states. Only 34 of these so- called Annex-2
      states have so far ratified the treaty. Among the 44 not ratifying the
      treaty are the United States, India, Pakistan, China, Israel and North
      Korea.
