The Director-General opened the special presentation “New Approaches to General and Complete Disarmament: the Strategic Concept for Removal of Arms and Proliferation”. He welcomed students from both London and Vancouver and highlighted that disarmament and non-proliferation education, especially among youth, is key in fighting indifference and complacency. He also appealed to Member States of the Conference to establish and implement a Programme of Work that would include substantive negotiations and emphasized the need to break the impasse.
