CONFERENCE ON DISARMAMENT
GENERAL ASSEMBLY OF THE UNITED NATIONS
Proposals for the "Prohibition of the Production of Fissile Material for Nuclear Weapons or Other Nuclear Explosive Devices"
26. At the 770th plenary meeting on 26 June 1997, the delegation of Germany, drawing on earlier statements of several representatives of other Member States, proposed the reestablishment of the Ad Hoc Committee on the prohibition of the production of fissile material for nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices on the basis of the report of the Special Coordinator on this subject and the mandate contained therein (CD/1299).
27. This proposal did not command consensus and the Conference did not reestablish an Ad Hoc Committee on this issue during its 1997 session.
28. The following documents dealing with this issue were presented to the Conference:
(a) CD/1441, dated 22 January 1997, entitled "Letter dated 21 January 1997 addressed to the Secretary-General of the Conference from the Permanent Representative of the United States of America to the Conference on Disarmament transmitting a statement by President Clinton for the opening of the 1997 session of the Conference on Disarmament".
(b) CD/1456, dated 15 May 1997, submitted by the delegation of Canada, entitled "Views on the Conference on Disarmament's agenda and programme of work".
