Motion text

That this House calls for the complete elimination of chemical weapons, believing that they are hideous instruments of warfare and mass destruction which have caused unimaginable suffering to soldiers and civilians in both the developed and developing worlds; welcomes the Chemical Weapons Convention as an historic human achievement, outlawing the very existence - the development, production, retention, transfer and use - of an entire category of weapons of mass destruction and providing the most comprehensive multilateral system of verification ever undertaken; looks forward to rapid universal adherence to the Convention and trusts that it will serve as a model for the control of other types of weaponry; urges the Preparatory Commission to make the verification regime an effective one, in order to ensure the strict and successful implementation of the Convention; and calls for earliest possible entry into force of the Convention and, to this end, supports the speedy ratification of the Convention.
