Practice Relating to Nuclear Weapons
In 1996, during a debate in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, the representative of Bolivia stated:
My delegation is pleased that during the past year the international community has taken two essential steps to halt the proliferation of nuclear weapons. One was the advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice regarding the legality of the threat or use of nuclear weapons, and the other the adoption of the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty. These are both historic documents that establish commitments to eliminate nuclear weapons.
