Comprehensive test-ban treaty

Since the 1950s, the question of the cessation of nuclear-weapon tests has been a prime objective of the United Nations. It has been a separate agenda item of the General Assembly each year since 1957. The General Assembly has adopted scores of resolutions calling for an end to nuclear-weapon testing—far more than on other issues of disarmament In addition, the question has been dealt with in several other multilateral disarmament bodies and has been the object of bilateral (USSR and United States) and trilateral (USSR, United Kingdom and United States) negotiations.
