Political and security questions

The disarmament discussion, during 1970, dealt with several collateral measures as well as the question of general and complete disarmament. Both the Conference of the Committee on Disarmament and the General Assembly gave particular attention to the need to prevent an arms race on the sea-bed. Continued concern was also expressed regarding the problems of chemical and biological weapons and a comprehensive ban on nuclear weapon testing.
