WEB Notes: Of course the US, UK, France, Russia and China all said they will not sign this document. We reported on this a few months ago as well. The world is trying to come together, but the nations who lead the world today will have some difficulty aligning with lower nations.

More than 50 countries, with Brazil and South Africa among them, signed the Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons at a signature ceremony at the UN headquarters in New York on Wednesday.
Brazil’s President Michel Temer was the first to put his signature under the document. The high-level signature ceremony was attended by several heads of state and government along with dozens of foreign ministers, including Austrian, Irish and Cuban ones. Guyana, the Vatican and Thailand are expected to provide signed advance copies of the ratification instruments later in the day.
