World disarmament conference

The idea of a world disarmament conference was formulated at the First Non-Aligned Summit Conference, held in 1961. It was reiterated at subsequent summit conferences of the non-aligned countries and endorsed, in 1965, by the General Assembly through the adoption of resolution 2030 (XX). In 1971 the Soviet Union revived the idea and 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.
