    • Political and security questions

      During 1969, collateral measures of disarmament and arms control were the main topic of disarmament discussions. These collateral measures included the question of chemical and bacteriological (biological) warfare and the prevention of an arms race on the sea-bed. Also discussed was a comprehensive nuclear test ban.

    • Economic and social questions

      Recent world economic trends were reviewed by the Economic and Social Council at its fortyseventh session held from 14 July to 8 August 1969. The discussion in the Council was based on the World Economic Survey, 1968, the regional suveys for Europe, Asia and the Far East, Latin America, and Africa, and on a special study on selected development problems in the Middle East.

    • Questions relating to trust and non-self-governing territories and the declaration on granting independence

      Under the International Trusteeship System established by the Charter of the United Nations, Member States administering Trust Territories are accountable to the United Nations for the discharge of their responsibilities and obligations in the administation of the Territories.

    • Legal questions

      By an Application of 19 June 1962, the Belgian Government claimed reparation for the damage allegedly sustained by Belgian nationals, share-holders in the Barcelona Traction, Light and Power Company, Limited—a company incorporated in Canada—as a result of acts said to be contrary to international law committed towards the company by organs of the Spanish State. This claim arose out of the adjudication in bankruptcy by a Spanish court of the Barcelona Traction, Light and Power Company. (A previous case, which had been brought before the Court in 1958, was removed from the list in 1961 after discontinuance of the proceedings by the Belgian Government.)

    • Administrative and budgetary questions

      In 1969, the General Assembly again reviewed the composition of the Secretariat and the progress made in recruiting the staff of the Secretariat on as wide a geographical basis as possible. The review was centred mainly on the progress made in the implementation of the Assembly’s request of 21 December 1968, that the Secretary-General continue his efforts to achieve a better geographical distribution of the staff of the Secretariat at all levels.
