The third special session of the General Assembly devoted to disarmament

In seeking to discharge its responsibilities in the field of disarmament, the United Nations has through the years used a variety of methods, techniques and approaches. In 1978, in its effort to promote a more peaceful and stable world order through a balanced and verifiable reduction of national armaments, it held, for the first time, a special session of the General Assembly entirely devoted to disarmament. A second special session on disarmament was held in 1982. In the Concluding Document of that session it was agreed that a third special session should be held at a date to be decided by the Assembly at its thirty-eighth session.
