Practice Relating to Nuclear Weapons
In 1996, during a debate in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, the representative of Sweden stated:
It is imperative that the momentum of recent years in nuclear disarmament be maintained and further strengthened. For this reason, my delegation voted in favour of the draft resolution. However, the Swedish Government welcomes and supports all efforts, in the appropriate forums, to achieve the complete elimination of nuclear weapons. In this regard, negotiations in the Conference on Disarmament and further effective measures by the nuclear-weapon States themselves both have an important role to play.
