United States Congratulates Tuvalu for Acceding to the Biological Weapons Convention – United States Department of State

The United States congratulates Tuvalu, which deposited its instrument of accession to the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) with the United States on June 28, 2024.  As one of the treaty’s depositary governments, the United States recognizes and welcomes Tuvalu’s important decision to join the more than 180 other BWC States Parties in advancing the BWC toward the goal of universalization.

The BWC is critical to international efforts to address the threat posed by biological weapons, whether in the hands of State or non-State actors.  Maximizing its effectiveness requires that all States become Parties and fully implement its obligations.  We strongly urge all States not party to the BWC to join the Convention without delay.
