Disarmament is an important process in building peace and cooperation in the world and especially in the region. The OAS is by nature a place where states can dialogue peacefully without having to resort to using weapons and force. In addition, the OAS also strives to work against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, as well as eliminating illegal arms trafficking.
