The UN General Assembly's First Committee on Disarmament and International Security approved a draft resolution proposed by Iran on nuclear disarmament.The draft resolution was proposed by Iran's diplomatic mission at that UN General Assembly panel discussion on disarmament and international security. The panel endorsed the resolution, titled 'Pursuing Implementation of Pledges Undertaken by member states in the NPT Review Conferences in 1995, 2000 and 2010' with 107 members votes in favor and 10 abstention. The resolution was endorsed amid strong opposition by the US, Israel and a number of western countries. The resolution calls for accelerating adoption of necessary measures for the implementation of the member states' pledges about full dismantlement and annihilation of nuclear arsenals transparently, irreversibly and under international supervision. The Iranian proposed resolution also lays emphasis on the implementation of the 1995 NPT Review Conference resolution on the establishment of a nuclear-free Middle-East. It also reiterates the demand for the endorsement of the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) by the Israeli regime and international supervision over Israel's nuclear facilities. Iran, an NPT-signatory, has called for the removal of all weapons of mass destruction from across the globe. Also in pursuit of global nuclear disarmament, Tehran has so far held two conferences on nuclear disarmament with officials from different world countries in attendance. Foreign ministers, representatives and nuclear experts from 60 world countries participated in the event to discuss challenges on nuclear disarmament, countries' commitment to nuclear dismantlement and disarmament and aftermaths of inaction in the destruction of the Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMDs).
