MINSK, 2 November (BelTA) - The Belarusian resolution on prohibition of new types of weapons of mass destruction was supported by the UN, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

At the initiative of the Republic of Belarus the First Committee of the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly adopted by an absolute majority (173 votes in favor, with no abstentions and three votes against) a resolution entitled “Prohibition of the development and manufacture of new types of weapons of mass destruction and new systems of such weapons: report of the Conference on Disarmament”.
