New weapons of mass destruction

Bearing in mind that military research may result in new weapons of mass destruction, the international community reacted as early as 1948 in the first resolution adopted by the Commission for Conventional Armaments. By that resolution the Commission, in defining the bounds of its jurisdiction, advised the Security Council that “weapons of mass destruction should be defined to include atomic explosive weapons, radioactive material weapons, lethal chemical and biological weapons, and any weapons developed in the future with characteristics comparable in destructive effect to those of the atomic bomb or other weapons mentioned above”
