Ref.: OA Nro. 10/94 Vienna, 28 January 1994

Sir,

I have the honour of writing to inform you that, during the VIIIth Special Session of the General Conference of the Agency for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America (OPANAL), held on 18 January 1994 in Mexico City, United Mexican States, the Head of the Argentine delegation to that Conference, Ambassador Rogelio Pfirter, deposited with the Government of Mexico the instruments of ratification of and waiver under the Treaty for the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons in Latin America and the Caribbean (Tlatelolco Treaty), with the amendments thereto made in 1990, 1991 and 1992.

Since this Treaty is in force for the Argentine Republic with effect from the above- mentioned date, my country becomes a full member of OPANAL as of that date.

In view of the fundamental importance which my Government attaches to this matter, I hereby request you if possible to arrange for the IAEA's Member States to be appraised of the above by circulation of an Agency information document.

Accept, Sir, etc..
