UN Disarmament Week 2010

To discuss Disarmament week, let’s start with the meaning and introduction of Disarmament. In simple words we may say that it is an act of reducing or limiting or abolishing weapons. We can also say that this is a part ofeconomic, political, technical and military process to reduce and eliminate the weapon system. The most common type of Disarmamentsare abolishing of weapon of mass destruction like nucleararms. Complete Disarmamentsstands for removal of all kindof weapons including conventional arms.
Many people believe that the world would be a more peaceful place if there were few weapons. I will also like add that United Nation is successfully working from past many years to reduce the nuclear weapons all overthe world. After this introduction about Disarmament, let’s move of toDisarmament week. Disarmament week was founded by United Nation in year 1978 with purpose of controlling, reducing, limiting and abolishing of weapons. This week is held every yearon 24 October- 30 October. This is an important occasionto raise awareness in the public and Governments, so that we can recognize disarmament as a key in creating a peaceful and sustainable world. The purpose of celebrating this week is to educate the people that how much peaceful this world is without weapons. Another purpose behind this is to organize a event where all states are invited from all over the world and information are given to them like danger of the arms race, need of reducing weapons, how does it effects environment and increasing public understanding of the urgent task of Disarmament. In 1995,it invites the Governments and NGOs to take part in Disarmament week. It also invited the General Secretaryto promote and making a good understanding between the public of Disarmament problems and aims of the week. In Disarmament week, an important focus is given to convince the nations and making understanding between them for removing the mass destruction weapons like nuclear arms. Weapons are divided here intwo major categories one among them is weapons of mass destruction that are nuclear, biological and chemical weapon, another category is of general weapons or small arms. Here I also want to add that most of the time of Disarmament is spent trying on halt all nuclear weapon making. United Nation also achieves few historical achievements in this Disarmament week for both weapons of mass destruction and conventional weapons. But here, I also want to add that still there are more than 30000 to 50000 nuclear warheads which are enough to destroy our beautiful world.
Many foundations as well as Universities have got to fail to support research in disarmament. Soviet Union was the perfect example of acountry that had destroyed their lots of weapons in year 1991, and the main reason behind this is political pressure, as at that time Soviet Union is divided into many small countries. ThoughNowadays, Many countries are influenced by Disarmament week and hencesigning nuclear deal. This Disarmament week is not much successful in United States; the reason behind this is that United State is thebiggest exporter of the smallarms. And many political parties and Business Parties are against this Disarmament because as they believe this will affect their country’s growth. In the end, I just want to tell you people that every year our Country spend millions of dollars in making these weapons weather for weapon of mass destruction or on small arms,due to which our markets andeconomy affected. I am not talking about only an Under developed country but also speaking about Developed countries, as we are spending so much money here, then we have not muchmoney available for spendingon social problems or climatic issue or for development of our country, like if we not purchase or make weapons then we can spent these million of dollars for removingmany of the social issues likechild labor, or global warming, etc. But here we canjust suggest, following these things or not are on our Government, weather they want to spend this money on weapons or for social problems.

Best regards
