Nuclear arms limitation and disarmament

For a long time, the attention of the international community has been focused on the danger posed by nuclear weapons to the very survival of mankind and the consequent pressing need to adopt effective measures relating to the cessation of the nuclear arms race at an early date and to nuclear disarmament. A number of agreements have been reached, within and outside the framework of the United Nations, to diminish that danger, but, as has been repeatedly pointed out, the quantitative and qualitative development of nuclear weapons has continued, leading to a staggering growth in the number of nuclear weapons and the development and deployment of ever more complex and destructive weapons systems.
