Three resolutions proposed by Pakistan were adopted on Thursday by the United Nations General Assembly’s (UNGA) First Committee with overwhelming support, however, India was the sole country to vote against the resolutions.

The resolutions on conventional arms control was adopted by a large majority of 179 countries.

The resolutions focus on regional disarmament, conventional arms control at regional and sub-regional levels as well as confidence building measures in the regional and sub-regional context.

Pakistan’s Ambassador at the UN Maleeha Lodhi described the adoption of these resolutions with the support of an overwhelming majority of countries as acknowledgement of Pakistan’s commitment to promote the objectives of regional and global disarmament.

She also stated that these resolutions represented Pakistan’s contribution to furthering the goals of regional and global disarmament within the framework of the United Nations and demonstrated the country’s commitment to strengthening international peace and security. The resolutions highlight the importance of regional approaches to disarmament, which complement global disarmament efforts and stress the need to promote confidence building measures for enhancing regional and international peace and security.

This resolution underlines the significance of pursuing arms control in regional and sub-regional contexts while also recognizing the importance of equitable representation of women in arms control discussions and negotiations. The other two resolutions by Pakistan on regional disarmament and CBMs at regional level were adopted by consensus.
