The role of the United Nations

The most important role for the United Nations consists of its efforts to work on the most dangerous conflicts among and within States that provide the key motivations for acquiring weapons, including weapons of mass destruction. The United Nations must enhance these efforts to combat this danger at the source. In this context, the Organization should continue to support and encourage efforts at the regional level to cope with the threat of the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, including to non-state actors, e.g., the proposed Zone Free of Weapons of Mass Destruction in the Middle East, supported by all countries in the region.
