27 - March 1982

on the agenda at the U.N.
In his book, "VERIFICATION, KEY TO DISARAMAMENT" Louis PERILLIER recalls that the Preliminary Commission of the Disarmament Conference that opened in Geneva, on February 2nd 1932, organized by the League of Nations, had the question of verification placed in the agenda. The delegates of several countries discussed the point for several years.

After the Second World War, the issue of verification was taken up again, but the work was not as thorough and sound as during the Geneva Conference. In that line, in 1960, five Western countries put forward a proposition for complete and controlled disarmament and the McCloy/Zorin Declaration of 1961 clearly envisaged verification.

We find this preoccupation with verification again in the 1963 Moscow treaty, in the Helsinki Agreement of 1975 and in the final Declaration of the United Nations special session on Disarmament, held in 1978.

Will a country recommended placing "verification" on the agenda of the U.N. Special Session on Disarmament, next June as was the case at the League of Nations, 50 years ago.

Why should France not be that country, when it had already considered verification an essential component among its suggestions, during the Geneva Conference, which lasted from 1932 to 1934 ?
