Special session of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament

The idea of convening either a special session of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament or a world disarmament conference under the auspices of the United Nations was initially discussed at the First Conference of Heads of State or Government of Non-Aligned Countries, held at Belgrade in 1961, and a proposal to that effect was formally included in the Declaration adopted by the Conference. Thereafter it was regularly reiterated in the final documents adopted at subsequent Summit Conferences (Cairo, 1964; Lusaka, 1970; Algiers, 1973), ministerial meetings (New York, 1971; Georgetown, 1972; Lima, 1975) and other conferences of the non-aligned countries, the underlying motive behind the initiative being the urgent need of setting in motion a process of general disarmament.
