Practice Relating to Rule 74. Chemical Weapons
The Czech Republic’s Act on the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (1997) bans the “development, production, use and handling of chemical weapons”, as well as the “import of chemical weapons to the Czech Republic or their transit”.
At the 1996 Session of the Conference on Disarmament, the Czech Republic stated that it “has never possessed or produced chemical weapons and neither have they ever been deployed on its territory. The humane idea of their complete ban and elimination has always had our full support.”
