United Nations disarmament bodies and their activities in 1986

According to the Charter of the United Nations, the purpose of the Organization is, among other things, “ to maintain international peace and security” (Article 1). The General Assembly may consider the general principles of co-operation in the maintenance of those goals, including the principles governing disarmament and the regulation of armaments, and may make recommendations with regard to them to the Members of the Organization or to the Security Council or to both (Article 11). “ In order to promote the establishment and maintenance of international peace and security with the least diversion for armaments of the world’s human and economic resources”, the Security Council is responsible for formulating plans to be submitted to the Members of the United Nations for the establishment of a system for the regulation of armaments (Article 26).
