Means of delivery of weapons of mass destruction are inextricably tied to the initiative for Middle East zone free of WMD. Means of delivery-related threats are evolving, increasing in complexity, and leading to new security dynamics in the region, yet they remain the least explored part of the initiative.

In this publication, the author examines the history of means of delivery in the context of the Zone, captures and assesses what regional perspectives and concerns are known regarding their inclusion in the Zone, and presents options for states to consider if and when deliberating this issue.

A recording of the event presenting this report is available on the UNIDIR YouTube Channel (or see below).
