UNSC urges review of n-resolution on non-state actors

United Nations, June 17 (IANS) The UN Security Council has asked its members to review its resolution on preventing non-state actors from acquiring nuclear weapons.

“The review should serve our common interest of preventing the ability of non-State actors (an individual or entity, not acting under the lawful authority of any State) to threaten us with nuclear, chemical and biological weapons in particular for terrorist purposes,” Xinhua news agency cited an official statement as saying.

Resolution 1540, “Non-proliferation of weapons of mass destruction” adopted in 2004, asks all member states to refrain from providing any form of support to non-State actors that attempt to develop, transfer or use nuclear, chemical or biological weapons.

Affirming that proliferation of nuclear, chemical, biological weapons constitutes a threat to international peace and security, the resolution obligates all states to adopt and enforce effective laws which prohibit any non-State actor to manufacture, transfer or use nuclear, chemical and biological weapons.

According to the council, the review began on April 28 and is to be completed by November 30, 2016.
