Radiological weapons

The question of controlling the use of radiological weapons has been considered by the General Assembly at various times since 1969. In that year, the Assembly, acting on the initiative of Malta, adopted resolution 2602 C (XXIV) concerning radiological warfare, in which it not only recommended that the CCD consider the need for effective methods of control of nuclear weapons that maximize radioactive effects, but invited that Committee to consider effective methods of control against the use of radiological methods of warfare conducted independently of nuclear explosions.
