Statement on 'Ways of Work' delivered to the UN First Committee, 29 October 2013

There is often more to be frustrated about than satisfied with when it comes to General Assembly discussions on disarmament issues. That said, in this past year there has been some noteworthy progress in disarmament and arms control. Just a few weeks ago the General Assembly held its first ever high-level meeting on nuclear disarmament, at which the majority of delegations who took the floor reaffirmed their determination to work to outlaw and eliminate nuclear weapons. On the same day, the Security Council adopted its first resolution on small arms and light weapons. In Geneva, while the Conference on Disarmament continued to flounder, the open-ended working group sparked discussions that moved states away from entrenched national positions. And just since June, over 100 states have signed the Arms Trade Treaty.
