Switzerland will not be signing new nuclear treaty
Switzerland has said it will not be signing the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons at the UN General Assembly - despite having voted for it in the UN back in June.
The Foreign Ministry says it needs more time to examine the text.
Around 50 nations are expected to sign – 122 voted for its implementation. None of the recognized nuclear powers will be signing.
Switzerland says its main concern is how it may impact on the Nuclear non-Proliferation Treaty.
Critics say the treaty is largely symbolic anyway.
