17.8 The Meaning of Disarmament

The term ’Disarmament’ is used to refer to ’the reduction or control or elimination of all kinds of weapons in order to avoid war and establish peace.’ Disarmament allows a nation to maintain weapons for the purpose of internal security only. Its objective is the obliteration of all offensive weapons.

Disarmament is popularly taken to mean the stricture on the production and maintenance of all nuclear weapons. In less developed countries where money is needed for more pressing needs like providing food, education and medical care for the people, disarmament implies that there should be a curb on money spent on weapons.

For disarmament to be effective it is essential that all countries abide by it.
