Mexico’s Non-Nuclear Pact

Did you know that Mexico has a non-nuclear pact with Latin American countries that has been in effect since 1967? Last November, Las Playas in Tijuana received a new commemoration that notes this fact. The plaque reads:

“Here in Tijuana, the most northwestern municipality of all Latin America, begins the Nuclear Free Zone of Latin America and the Caribbean, which extends to the farthest southern extreme of the Continnt. As established by the Treaty of Tlatelolco in 1967, within this 80 million square kilometer region there are no nuclear weapons nor will there ever be.”
