The draft treaty would scrap Weapons of Mass Destruction (nuclear, chemical and biological) and missiles, and control Army, Navy and Airforce, and small arms weapons with verification from satellite and other digital sources. This proposed draft builds on the provisions of pre-existing international agreements and provides a framework for governments to move towards comprehensive disarmament. It builds on the legal obligation outlined in Article VI of the Non-Proliferation Treaty. Please see the SCRAP Weapons proposal for further details.
