The Ambassador of Yemen meets the Energy Charter Secretary General

On 23 February 2017 H.E. Ambassador Mohamed Taha Mustafa met with Energy Charter Secretary General Dr Urban Rusnák in Brussels to discuss the Ratification of the Energy Charter Treaty by the Republic of Yemen.  

Yemen, a signatory of the International Energy Charter, is finalising the last stage of the ratification process for its accession to the Energy Charter Treaty. The Government officially approved accession to the Treaty in November 2016 and the Ambassador informed the Secretary General that Yemen is expected to become a Contracting Party in 2017. Ambassador Taha Mustafa also welcomed the proposal from the Secretariat to provide technical assistance and capacity building programs for Yemen in the framework of post conflict reconstruction of the energy infrastructure. The Secretariat will continue assisting Yemen in its next procedural steps to ratify the Energy Charter Treaty.
