Submitted byv: Republic of the Congo

Keeping in mind that the development of weapons of mass destruction is increasingly evolving to become more technologically advanced and continues expanding every day,

Acknowledging that more and more nations are obtaining weapons of mass destruction each day,

Recognizing the fact that there are around 26,000 weapons remaining in our world today,

Realizing that weapons and weapons testing causes great harm to the environment due to excessive hazardous waste,

  1. Encourages other nations to sign the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons (NPT) to ensure the safety of other nations and prevent attacks;
  2. Stresses the importance of multilateral and bilateral peace talks between nations that are involved in activity pertaining to weapons of mass destruction (WMDs) in order to:
    1. reduce or eliminate certain categories of nuclear weapons,
    2. prevent the proliferation of such weapons and their delivery vehicles,
  3. Promotes the use of energy weapons that burn less fossil fuels as a measure to reduce the environmental impact of WMD;
  4. Implements the expansion of inquiries and investigations into nuclear facilities in order to prevent violation of the treaties by member nations that initiate a production of WMDs;
  5. Suggests that these inspections should be held biannually at an unannounced time in order to prevent nations from masking violations;
  6. Recommends the adoption of Chemical Weapons Convention for the elimination of chemical weapons;
  7. Authorizes inspections of facilities if a suspicion arises that the manufacturing of chemical weapons is occurring.
