Abstract
Important decisions have recently been made, or are being considered, in various capitals on the subject of chemical weapons. The paper focuses attention on certain views which are considered relevant to these deliberations but which, in the present international climate, have received little attention. It begins with an examination of the role that chemical weapons play in the East-West security framework. The paper goes on to discuss the global dimension of the issue, and finally, it examines chemical weapons in an arms control context, and suggests that a regional approach to their prohibition can go a long way toward satisfying the immediate security concerns of certain countries, while offering certain advantages and providing new impetus to negotiations at the superpower and multilateral levels.
