Cancellation of the United Nations Disarmament Commission 2002 Session

The 2002 session of the United Nations Disarmament Commission (UNDC) has been cancelled.

As a result of postponements and changes to the UN Calendar, originating with the disruption of activities in September 2001, participants at UNDC organizational meetings were unable to decide upon an appropriate date for the 2002 Substantive Session. This decision was taken with the understanding that it would be without prejudice to the future work of the UNDC.

The tentative dates for the 2003 Substantive Session are 31 March to 17 April.

There will be no changes in the names, titles or functions of designated officers.
