U.N. honors 20-year-old nuclear treaty on new stamps
By Denise McCarty
The United Nations issued a pane of 10 stamps Sept. 24 picturing the logo of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty.
The stamps mark the 20th anniversary of the opening for signature of this treaty on Sept. 24, 1996. Since then, 183 countries have signed the treaty, and of these, 164 have ratified it, according to the website CTBTO.org.
The Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization is headquartered in Vienna, Austria, and the new 0.80 stamp is for use from the U.N. post office at the Vienna International Center in Vienna.
