Press Statement: the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia on the DISEC Resolution


Honourable Secretary-General,

Honourable delegates,

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia is very pleased with the resolution by the First Committee of the United Nations General Assembly, especially with operative clause no. 2 on transparency of military expenditure on nuclear weapons.

We are very pleased to see that all states with nuclear weapons, except Pakistan but including Israel, are willing to submit reports on their military expenditures, including their spending on nuclear weapons.

The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia feels comfortable that it can start reporting its military expenditure and reduce its military expenditure if the other states, especially Israel, honour their commitments as well.
