Guinea is not a state party to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons. Guinea has not yet declared its position on the negotiation of a legally binding instrument on autonomous weapons systems.
At the 78th UN General Assembly First Committee in 2023, Guinea voted in favour of resolution L.56 on autonomous weapons systems, along with 163 other states. Resolution L.56 stressed the ‘urgent need for the international community to address the challenges and concerns raised by autonomous weapons systems’, and mandated the UN Secretary-General to prepare a report, reflecting the views of member and observer states on autonomous weapons systems and ways to address the related challenges and concerns they raise from humanitarian, legal, security, technological and ethical perspectives and on the role of humans in the use of force. In the same meeting, Guinea said that ‘AI plays a role in the development of autonomous weapons without human action, the risk of error is something we must worry about. It is susceptible to errors that could lead to devastating consequences.'Statement by Guinea, 06 October 2023, 78th UN general Assembly First Committee, https://webtv.un.org/en/asset/k1j/k1jpgfs4nq
