A key committee of the UN General Assembly has adopted Pakistan’s four annual disarmament-related resolutions that are aimed at strengthening regional as well as international peace and security.
Three of these resolutions, adopted on Thursday by the 193-nation Assembly’s First Committee (Disarmament and International Security), received wide support from member states.
The resolutions deal with regional disarmament, conventional arms control at regional and sub-regional levels as well as Confidence Building Measures (CBMs) in the regional and sub-regional context.
The resolutions titled, “Regional disarmament” and “Confidence-building measures in the regional and sub-regional context” were adopted by consensus.
The text titled, “Conventional arms control at the regional and sub-regional levels” received 182 votes in favour, with India voting against, the only country to do so.
