International Atomic Energy Agency
Yemen joined the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) in 1994 with a view to benefiting from the Agency’s areas of support in the field of the peaceful uses of nuclear energy and its commitment to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), which it acceded to in 1986.
The text of the Agreement (and the Protocol thereto) concluded between the Republic of Yemen and the International Atomic Energy Agency for the application of safeguards in connection with the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) is reproduced in this document for the information of all Members. The Agreement was approved by the Board of Governors on 12 September 2000. It was signed in Vienna on 21 September 2000. Pursuant to Article 24 of the Agreement, the Agreement entered into force on 14 August 2002. Pursuant to Article II of the Protocol, the Protocol entered into force on the same date
Under the Safeguards Agreement of the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) the IAEA has the right to ensure that all nuclear materials are used only for peaceful purposes within the framework of the signatory state. The signing of this Agreement is mandatory for the States members of the IAEA wishing to benefit from nuclear applications for peaceful purposes.
An additional protocol to this agreement has been put in place giving the IAEA broader authority to verify the peaceful uses of nuclear energy through sudden inspection visits to the sites and other measures. The signing of the Additional Protocol is optional for States and not mandatory.
Since 2007, Republic of Yemen has been a party to the International Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material, which is an agreement within the framework of the IAEA, which has been amended and has not yet been signed by our country.
