Hiroshima for Global Peace

Hiroshima Report 201815. Egypt (Non-Nuclear-Weapon State)

Points / Full Points (%)

Nuclear Disarmament

17/42 (40.5%)

Egypt voted for most of the UNGA Resolutions regarding nuclear disarmament, and has expressed approval of the issues on the humanitarian dimensions and legal prohibition of nuclear weapons. However, it has not yet signed the TPNW. Nor has it actively engaged in prohibition of nuclear disarmament. Egypt has not ratified the CTBT, either.

Nuclear Non-Proliferation

37/61 (60.7%)

Egypt has been active toward establishing a WMD-free zone in the Middle East. Meanwhile, it has yet to conclude the IAEA Additional Protocol. Egypt has made efforts for, inter alia, putting export control legislation in place and setting enforcement agencies. Still, its export controls remain at an insufficient level, due to a lack of introduction of important elements including list control and catch-all control provisions. While signing, it has not yet ratified the Africa Nuclear-Weapon-Free Zone Treaty.

Nuclear Security

14/41 (34.1%)

Egypt has signed the CPPNM and the CPPNM Amendment before 2017. In 2017, Egypt proceeded with the development of domestic law on prevention of illicit transfers, held an international training course organized by the IAEA, and worked to foster nuclear security culture utilizing its COE.
