Benin reiterated calls for the total destruction of nuclear weapons and the reduction of small arms and light weapons, which, he said, had ultimately become weapons of mass destruction. He called for the nuclear Powers to reduce their stockpiles of nuclear weapons, and urged the international community to remain vigilant in not returning to the doctrine of the cold war.
