6 February 2012 — In a special ceremony at the United Nations Headquarters in New York, Indonesian Foreign Minister Marty Natalegawa formally submitted his country's ratification of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty (CTBT) to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.
Indonesia is now the 157th State to ratify the Treaty, bringing the number of countries required to ratify the Treaty before it enters into force down to eight. When the treaty enters into force, it will become a global law, banning the explosion of nuclear weapons anywhere.
