The commission for conventional armaments

When the first session of the General Assembly reconvened in New York in the latter part of 1946, it took up, on the initiative of the Soviet Union, the question of the general regulation and reduction of armaments and armed forces. The Soviet Union proposed the establishment of two commissions : one “for the control of the execution of the decision regarding the reduction of armaments” and the other “for the control of the execution of the decision regarding the prohibition of the use of atomic energy for military purposes” The prohibition of the production and use of atomic weapons was proposed as the first step of a programme for general disarmament.
