International tensions and the continued arms race had an adverse effect on disarmament negotiations and deliberations during 1981. and as a consequence there were few tangible results in the field of disarmament. Various aspects of arms limitation, disarmament and the consequences of the arms race were considered by the Disarmament Commission, composed of all United Nations Member States; the Committee on Disarmament, a 40-nation negotiating body meeting at Geneva; and the General Assembly and its First Committee.
