Note on the quantitative limitation of stockpiles of nuclear weapons (June 1967)

In June 1967, the Agency for the Control of Armaments (ACA) of Western European Union (WEU) issues a draft note, which supplements the note dated April 1966 on the question of controls of the quantitative limitation of stockpiles of nuclear weapons in the WEU Member States. The text also mentions the ban on the manufacture of nuclear weapons in the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). The document refers to the various French statements on the issue of nuclear weapons storage, noting that the ongoing development of nuclear weapons is affecting the notion of maximum levels laid down in the treaty. It also emphasises the role of questions and recommendations by the WEU Assembly in furthering the debate and points out that the political scope of this matter goes beyond the framework of WEU. The Agency concludes by mentioning that it is useful for all the Member States of the WEU Council to have certain information at their disposal until actual controls are introduced.
