The conference of Non-Nuclear-Weapon states

As THE CONCEPT of an agreement on the non-proliferation of nuclear weapons began to take concrete shape during 1965-1966 in the form of various treaty drafts, the countries which did not possess nuclear weapons felt that it would be useful to exchange and co-ordinate their views on the subject. At the twenty-first session of the General Assembly in 1966, Pakistan introduced a draft resolution, co-sponsored by Jamaica, Libya, Saudi Arabia and Somalia, by which the Assembly would decide to convene a conference of non-nuclear-weapon States not later than June 1967 to consider the following, and other related questions: (1) how the security of the non-nuclearweapon States could best be assured; (2) how non-nuclearweapon States might co-operate among themselves in preventing the proliferation of nuclear weapons; and (3) how nuclear devices might be used for exclusively peaceful purposes. By the draft resolution, the Assembly would also request its President to set up a Preparatory Committee, to make appropriate arrangements for convening the conference. The sponsors of the draft resolution subsequently accepted amendments^ by which the conference would be convened not later than July 1968 and the proposed Preparatory Committee would be asked to consider and report to the General Assembly's twenty-second session on the question of association of nuclear States with the work of the conference.
