Armaments, Disarmament and International Security

‘Today's world cannot be secure without security for all, yet the events of the past few years have done little to bring global solutions closer. The UN Secretary-General was right to seek suggestions for new approaches from the High-level Panel that reported in December 2004, and right to endorse their major proposals for consideration at the 2005 UN General Assembly.’
