Yemen (code not in current use)


On 22 May 1990, Democratic Yemen (numerical code 720) and Yemen (numeric code 886) merged to form a single sovereign State. Since that date, they have been represented as one member of the United Nations with the name "Yemen" (numeric code 887).

This OID has been hijacked in 1998 by the the Taiwan Government Certification Authority because someone at Taiwan Chungwa Telecom originally believed 886 was the numeric code for Taiwan. But country code 886 has never been assigned to Taiwan by the United Nations Statistics Division (it was indeed assigned to Yemen). (See also Conflicts over Taiwan OIDs.)
Taiwan has no right to use this arc. All existing Taiwanese OIDs should be transferred to the 2.16.158 arc.
