Follow-Up of the special sessions of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament

The two special sessions of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament and the agenda items on their follow-up which have been considered annually by the Assembly have provided the framework for most diversified initiatives and action on disarmament in the course of the last eight years. (The first special session on disarmament was held in 1978 as the tenth special session of the General Assembly, and the second session was held in 1982 as the twelfth special session.) Recognizing the value of discussing over a period of time not only specific proposals which are limited in scope, but also “ others of fundamental importance, on which, because of the complexity of the issues involved and the short time at the disposal of the special session, it has proved impossible to reach satisfactory agreed conclusions”, as stated in paragraph 112 of the Final Document of the Tenth Special Session, the Assembly envisaged the continuation of the study and negotiation of the various questions in all competent disarmament organs.
