Yemen maintains policies and practices that are compatible with all of the prohibitions in Article 1 of the TPNW, and can therefore sign and ratify or accede to the Treaty without the need for a change in conduct.
Yemen's government has said that it is not currently in a position to accede to the TPNW due to its internal situation.
Yemen associated itself with a statement by the Arab Group in the First Committee of the 2021 UN General Assembly, which welcomed the TPNW and said the Treaty 'places nuclear weapons in its logical place as weapons whose possession or use or threat of use is a violation of the most basic rules of international humanitarian law in addition to the fact that it threatens international peace and security'.1
- Yemen should urgently adhere to the TPNW.
- Yemen should conclude and bring into force an Additional Protocol with the IAEA, and upgrade to a Modified Small Quantities Protocol. Yemen should also ratify the CTBT.
