The question of managing the production of biological weapons

Issue in GA 1: Disarmament and International Security

Biological Weapons, also known as germ weapons, are dangerous tools that have not been used officially in any warfare yet. However, if one were to produce and use them, they could wipe out all of humanity. It is therefore in everyone’s interest that the United Nations starts to set up rules on the production of biological weapons. Biological weapons, not to be confused with chemical weapons where one emits a dangerous chemical substance, are weapons where one releases a lethal disease. This can infect the country that the weapon is used on and can cause the mass genocide of a whole nation. Countries that are involved explicitly are the United States, the United Kingdom, Russia, Japan, Iraq and South Africa. This is because they have a history of producing and testing several biological weapons. However, all countries are ultimately involved because their security is dependent on the outcome of the Assembly.
