STATEMENT by the Representative of the Russian Federation in the First Committee of the 75th Session of the UN General Assembly at the Thematic Debate on «Regional Disarmament and Security»
Mr. Chairman, Colleagues, The military and political situation in the world continues to deteriorate. We are particularly concerned by the developments in Europe. The official anti-Russian policy of the North Atlantic Alliance "erodes" the original foundation on which European security regimes and instruments were built and functioned. Thousands of NATO military appear on a so-called "continuous rotational basis" where they have never been – near Russia's borders.
STATEMENT by the Representative of the Russian Federation in the First Committee of the 75th Session of the UN General Assembly at the Thematic Debate on «Conventional Weapons»
Mr. Chairman, Colleagues, Being among of the most active Parties to the Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May Be Deemed to Be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects (CCW) Russia stands for further strengthening of its regime, above all, via universalization of the Convention and its Protocols as well as full implementation of their provisions.
STATEMENT by the Representative of the Russian Federation in the First Committee of the 75th Session of the UN General Assembly at the Thematic Debate on «Outer Space (Disarmament Aspects)»
Mr Chairman, Outer space is the common heritage of humankind. In this regard the objective for the world community is to ensure the exploration and use of outer space for peaceful purposes, for the benefit and in the interest of all countries. Guided by that very understanding as of back to 1978, the first UNGA Special session on disarmament determined the prevention of an arms race in outer space (PAROS) and the launch of relevant negotiations in accordance with a spirit of the 1967 Outer Space Treaty as one of the key disarmament measures. The said objectives have been annually reaffirmed by the UNGA resolution on PAROS permanently supported and co-sponsored by the Russian Federation.
STATEMENT by the Representative of the Russian Federation in the First Committee of the 75th Session of the UN General Assembly at the Thematic Debate on «Other Weapons of Mass Destruction»
Mr. Chairman, Ladies and Gentlemen, The Convention on the Prohibition of the Development, Production, Stockpiling and Use of Chemical Weapons and on Their Destruction (CWC) is now in its third decade as one of the most important elements within the international system of disarmament and non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. It addresses two key issues: the elimination of an entire class of weapons of this kind and the establishment of firm barriers against the production, use, and proliferation of chemical weapons.
