Regional disarmament

In 2017, regional activities continued to address a wide range of issues related to disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control, particularly the illicit trade in small arms and light weapons and the non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as well as counter-terrorism. To achieve further progress in these areas, the United Nations endeavoured to enhance coordination and cooperation with States in various regions, regional and subregional organizations and other international organizations, as well as civil society.
