Voting at UN General Assembly in disarmament resolutions

October 26, 2017 @ 8:00 am - November 2, 2017 @ 5:00 pm

The United Nations General Assembly (First Committee) will take action on draft disarmament resolutions. This year a key resolution will be draft resolution L.45 which lays out the general mandate and dates for a special United Nations process to advance comprehensive nuclear disarmament – a United Nations High-Level Conference for Nuclear Disarmament.

The conference, which is like a summit, will take place at the United Nations in New York from May 14-16, 2018. It could build support among non-nuclear countries for the new Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons, and also build traction and progress on nuclear-risk reduction and disarmament measures to be undertaken by the nuclear-armed States. (Three of the nuclear armed States are already supporting the draft resolution).
