    This is the reason why the treaty was created. If countries would sign it, then other nations would follow suit and the proliferation of these weapons in space would end. The Republic of Turkey urges nations to comprehend this.

    The DPRK is more skeptical. If all nations were to sign it then it may have some impact. However even then we feel it may not as it would be easy for a nation to break it.

    Malta understands the DPRK's concerns, but surely if you were to sign it - it would have alot of impact.

    The Portuguese Republic shares France's disappointment in the amount of countries not willing to sign this treaty, and urges any nations who haven't voted to think carefully about their decision.

    It could in the future leave our economy vulnerable. We do not wish to be defenseless in the face of such weapons if they continue to be developed in the future.

    Syria agrees to sign this treaty as long as Article II is fully upheld by all participating members

    This militarization will be carried out by the UN following an order by the Secretary General.
    However we question how this would be carried out in reality, for example which country would give the required equipment and how it would be regulated to ensure that the weapons are only utilised against extraterrestrial beings and not a country.

    Switzerland will happily sign up to this Treaty - space is an integral part of our economy and our space research is of some of the highest quality worldwide, however we do not wish for the proliferation of space. We should not take our problems with our neighbours into space, a part of our world that should be purely for peace and the advancement of the human race, both in terms of our understanding of our surroundings and also tangible improvements to our quality of life here on Earth.

    Nigeria asks why Mr.France is disappointed. Nigeria feels that nations are aware that the signing of this treaty could lead to another weaponization problem, just like the one we currently have on earth with North Korea

    How is the weapon development in the DPRK a problem? It is for defense as we will have a deterrence against similar weapons being used against us.

    When we say its a problem, we mean that your nuclear development program is a problem to other states, such as the United States.

    We can't see the problem. The US also has nuclear arms. Ours are for defence only. Indeed surely the US is more of a problem, having a history of using nuclear arms as an offensive tactic?

    While I cannot speak for the original drafter of the Treaty, I would say tha the SG, through the SC and Military Staff Committee, could authorize and oversee any weaponization of space by individual countries, in the interested of international peace and security against any future external threats. I would assume it could/would work similarly to a UN Peacekeeping mission.

    The Republic of Turkey echoes the words of the SC. A comprehensive, team effort would mean less insecurities for nations.
