image of Yearbook of the United Nations 1989

The Yearbook of the United Nations stands as the authoritative reference work on the activities and concerns of the Organization. Based on official UN documents, the Yearbook provides comprehensive coverage of political and security matters, human rights issues, economic and social questions, legal issues, and institutional, administrative and budgetary matters.




During the year, the international community noted some positive developments towards meaningful arms limitation and disarmament, including actual reductions as a result of the 1987 Treaty between the United States of America and the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics on the Elimination of Their Intermediate-Range and Shorter-Range Missiles. By the end of 1989, following the entry into force of the Treaty the previous year, on 1 June 1988, some 2,000 of the 2,700 intermediate-range and shorter-range Soviet and United States missiles affected by the Treaty had been eliminated and the verification arrangements were reported to be working well.
