Bahrain has consistently voted in favour of the UN General Assembly resolutions on the TPNW in 2018, 2019, and 2020. In First Committee in the 2020 UN General Assembly, Bahrain called on all states to renounce nuclear weapons. As a member of the Arab Group, Bahrain also endorsed a statement on behalf of the group at the 2020 UN General Assembly's High-Level Plenary Meeting to Commemorate and Promote the International Day for the Total Elimination of Nuclear Weapons, which highlighted the TPNW as an 'unprecedented development' and said that it 'places nuclear weapons in their logical position as weapons whose possession, use, or even threat of use conflict with the most basic principles of international humanitarian law, in addition to being a direct threat to international peace and security.'

- Bahrain should urgently sign and ratify the TPNW, and encourage other states to adhere to the Treaty.
