Nuclear arms limitation and disarmament

The danger posed by nuclear weapons to the very survival of mankind has been recognized since they first came into existence. Measures have been proposed over the years which cover the entire spectrum of nuclear arms limitation and disarmament problems and include limitations, reductions and/ or the elimination of nuclear weapons and their delivery systems; the cessation of production of nuclear weapons; the cut-off of the production of fissionable material for weapons purposes; and the restriction or prohibition of the deployment by nuclear-weapon States of nuclear weapons on the territories of other States.
