The Disarmament and International Security Committee (DISEC) is the first of the six main committees of the General Assembly (GA) and allows the participation of all 193 member-states. DISEC deals with threats to international security on a global or regional scale, seeks solutions for conflicts and promotes disarmament. Outlining its importance, the very first resolution by the General Assembly in 1946 was adopted upon recommendation by the first committee, dealing with the threat of nuclear weapons and their proliferation after their use at the end of world war two. Although unable to impose sanctions, GA resolutions drafted by the DISEC are highly regarded by executive bodies of the UN, in particular by the United Nations Security Council.
