The volume 16 compiles the disarmament resolutions and decisions of the forty-sixth session of the General Assembly, the voting patterns in the General Assembly and the First Committee report and dates of their adoption. It summarizes developments and trends in 1991 on key issues of multilateral consideration at the international and regional levels. Reviews the activity of the forty-sixth session of the General Assembly, the Conference on Disarmament and the Disarmament Commission. Contains a timeline that highlights events in multilateral disarmament in 1991.




Throughout 1991 the end of the cold war continued to have a positive impact on international relations. Prospects for arms limitation and disarmament improved and a number of significant developments in this area took place during the year. Major reductions in the military budgets of many of the world’s leading military spenders are now in hand, a process that is welcome and that, at the same time, gives rise to social and economic challenges of its own.
