By the foreign ministers of Austria, Brazil, Ireland, Mexico, Nigeria and South Africa

Last July, the international community reached a historic agreement to ban nuclear weapons. Our six countries are proud to have joined this effort from the very beginning. On 6 October 2017, our endeavors were recognized by the most prestigious of institutions, the Nobel Peace Prize, conferred upon the International Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons (ICAN) “for its work to draw attention to the catastrophic humanitarian consequences of any use of nuclear weapons and for its ground breaking efforts to achieve a treaty-based prohibition of such weapons”.
