Conventional weapons and advanced technologies

The question of the reduction of conventional armaments and armed forces has been on the disarmament agenda of the United Nations since the Organization was created, albeit with varying degrees of emphasis. Efforts to regulate the build-up and transfer of such armaments were made as early as the mid-1960s and continue to this day. In addition, efforts have been made at the regional level with varying degrees of success, the most notable achievement being the Treaty on Conventional Armed Forces in Europe (1990).
