The African continent and islands within its African Union have signed the Pelindaba Treaty designating their countries as a Nuclear Weapon Free Zone. Other nations in South America, Asia, the South Pacific, the Caribbean and Antarctic have also signed similar treaties.

They were all commended by the United Nations for contributing to a world free from nuclear weapons, the ultimate goal for the world’s survival as President Obama stated in Prague last April. However, an impediment to that goal is the Island of Diego Garcia within the African Union, the site of one of the most valuable and secretive U.S. military bases overseas. The U.S. signed the Pelindaba Treaty’s protocols in 1996 but after a heated debate did not ratify them.
