Keynote address—Significance of UNSCR 1540 and opportunities for cooperation and assistance

The adoption of UNSCR 1540 was a major step towards strengthening the global framework of non-proliferation. In lieu of addressing this critical danger incrementally, this resolution takes a comprehensive approach. It supports wider acceptance of disarmament and non-proliferation instruments while striving to fill gaps in international treaties. Full implementation of UNSCR 1540 by all countries is a long-term goal and will require continuous efforts at the national, regional and international levels. National performance is crucial, and the 1540 Committee along with DDA and other international organizations stand ready to guide any State in need of assistance in fulfilling their obligations under the resolution.
