Chemical and biological weapons

The Member States of the United Nations have increasingly shown awareness of the threat posed by chemical and biological weapons. Over the years, as the toxicity of these weapons and the potential for their widespread use have increased, efforts have been made to ban them through international agreements in a way that would supplement and strengthen the Protocol for the Prohibition of the Use in War of Asphyxiating, Poisonous or Other Gases, and of Bacteriological Methods of Warfare adopted and signed in Geneva in 1925.
