Due to such a policy, its nuclear capabilities and posture remain unclear. Israel has yet to ratify the CTBT, nor has it declared a moratorium on production of fissile material for nuclear weapons. It voted against most of the UNGA Resolutions regarding nuclear disarmament. Israel has not signed the TPNW.
