Economic and social consequences of the arms race

Over the years the question of disarmament has been highlighted by the concern about the harmful consequences of the arms race for the development of all countries and for international peace and security. In 1970, at the twenty-fifth session of the General Assembly, the item entitled “Economic and social consequences of the armaments race and its extremely harmful effects on world peace and security” was placed on the agenda at the initiative of Romania. The Assembly adopted resolution 2667 (XXV) in which it, inter alia, requested the Secretary-General to prepare a report on the question with the assistance of qualified consultant experts. The report, entitled Economic and Social Consequences of the Arms Race and of Military Expenditures was submitted to the Assembly at its twenty-sixth session.
