Myanmar
Practice Relating to Nuclear Weapons
In 1996, during a debate in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, Myanmar stated:
Undoubtedly, there is a need for the nuclear-weapon States to review and revise their nuclear doctrines and policies. It is our view that, with the cold war and the East-West confrontation behind us, the nuclear-weapon States no longer need to rely on nuclear weapons to defend their vital security interests.
In this context, we welcome the advisory opinion of the International Court of Justice dated 8 July 1996. In its advisory opinion, the Court ruled that the threat or use of nuclear weapons would generally be contrary to the international law applicable to armed conflict and, in particular, the principles and rules of humanitarian law … Although the advisory opinion of the Court is not legally binding, it will certainly be helpful in the crystallization in due course of customary legal norms on the non-use of nuclear weapons. It also further reinforces our moral and legal arguments and rationale for nuclear disarmament with a view to total elimination of nuclear weapons within a time-bound framework.

In 1996, during a debate in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, Myanmar stated:
The historic Advisory Opinion of the International Court of Justice, dated 8 July 1996, gave further impetus to the international clamour for nuclear disarmament. All judges of the Court reaffirmed by a unanimous decision that there exists an obligation for all States to pursue in good faith and to bring to a conclusion negotiations leading to nuclear disarmament in all its aspects under safe and effective international control. Moreover, there has been a ground swell of interest and support for nuclear disarmament worldwide. The number of nuclear-weapon-free zones and proposals for the establishment of new nuclear-weapon-free zones is on the increase.
