World disarmament conference

The concept of a world disarmament conference, as a definite initiative, was formulated at the first Conference of Heads of State or Government of Non-Aligned Countries, held at Belgrade in 1961. That Conference recommended in its Declaration, inter alia, that the General Assembly decide to convene either a special session of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament or a world disarmament conference under the auspices of the United Nations. The idea was reiterated at several subsequent summit conferences of the non-aligned countries, including at Havana in 1979, and in the General Assembly, which, as early as 1965 on the basis of a non-aligned proposal, endorsed the idea of convening a world disarmament conference with its adoption of resolution 2030 (XX).
