ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the 7th United Nations General Assembly in Geneva, Switzerland. The conference highlights discussion on test-ban agreement, which was given first priority by the First Committee. The committee also addressed issues on general and complete disarmament, an atomic free Latin America, a convention to prohibit the use of nuclear weapons, and the peaceful uses of outer space. At the event, both the U.S. and the Soviet Union voted with unanimity on a majority of disarmament issues. The two countries abstained on the 37-nation test-ban resolution and voted for the resolutions on general and complete disarmament.
