This section reviews the developments that took place in 2020 in three multilateral nuclear arms control, disarmament and non-proliferation treaty frameworks: the 1968 Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (Non-Proliferation Treaty, NPT), the 2017 Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and the 1996 Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT). Developments in the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) on Iran’s nuclear programme are covered in section II. The Covid‑19 pandemic complicated procedures during the year, particularly regarding the NPT process. However, it could hardly be blamed for the general deadlock in arms control and disarmament that had persisted for several years.
