1945

The establishment of nuclear-weapon-free zones has, during the last 30 years, been considered by its advocates an effective means of halting the spread of nuclear weapons and thus promoting disarmament, particularly nuclear disarmament. It has also been argued that such a measure would assure the non-nuclear-weapon States against the use of nuclear weapons, thereby enhancing their security. The 1978 Final Document states that the establishment of nuclear-weapon-free zones on the basis of arrangements freely arrived at among the States of the region concerned constitutes an important disarmament measure, and that the process of establishing such zones in different parts of the world should be encouraged with the ultimate objective of achieving a world free of nuclear weapons.
