Egypt voted for most of the UNGA Resolutions regarding nuclear disarmament, and has expressed approval regarding 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 promotion of nuclear disarmament. Furthermore, Egypt has not ratified the CTBT.

Change compared to the Hiroshima Report 2019: 0

Egypt has been active toward establishing a WMD-free zone in the Middle East, and taken an initiative to convene the UN conference on a WMD-free zone in the Middle East. Meanwhile, it has yet to conclude the IAEA Additional Protocol. Egypt has made efforts toward, 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.

Change compared to the Hiroshima Report 2019: 0

Egypt announced that it has worked to introduce a modernization process for physical protection into domestic research reactors in 2019. On the other hand, Egypt has not completed the ratification of some nuclear security-related conventions, and there is room for improvement in the prevention of illicit transfers and multilateral efforts to strengthen nuclear security.
