Nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation issues

Nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation have long been a priority on the agenda of the international community. As a result of discussions and negotiations on nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation both within and outside the United Nations, a number of bilateral, regional and multilateral agreements have been concluded. These efforts have led to the reduction of nuclear arsenals and the exclusion of deployment of nuclear weapons from certain environments and regions. International norms have been established in order to prevent the proliferation and testing of nuclear weapons.
