Professor Jim Walsh, Senior Research Associate at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Security Studies Program said if sovereign states join ban treaty, they are obliged to follow that by international law. Ban treaty cannot lead to disarmament because it is not mandatory, but it is always to remind yourself that in the international system, states whether Iran or any other states are considered as sovereign and ultimately have control over what they decide to do, told Jim Walsh to the Mehr News correspondents.
