World disarmament conference

The concept of a world disarmament conference, having been proposed by the non-aligned countries at their first Summit Conference in 1961' and reiterated at subsequent ones, and endorsed by the General Assembly with its adoption of resolution 2030 (XX) in 1965, was revived on the initiative of the Soviet Union in 1971. That year the Assembly, by resolution 2833 (XXVI), stated that consideration should be given to the convening, following adequate preparation, of a world disarmament conference open to all States. Since then, the item has appeared on the agenda of the Assembly each year.
