Diplomats from Saudi Arabia received training in arms control and disarmament in Brussels over the past week.

Hotzone Solutions, an international training and consulting company, held the training at the request of the Saudi Arabian National Authority for the Chemical and Biological Weapons Conventions.

Diplomats from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Saudi Arabia were introduced to a number of international arms control treaties, such as the Non-Proliferation Treaty and the Chemical and Biological Weapons Conventions, Hotzone said.

The diplomats also were briefed on the Conference on Disarmament and learned about negotiating multilateral arms control and disarmament agreements. Missile Technology Control Regime, the Nuclear Supplier Group and the Zangger Committee held lectures on the issue of export control.

Diplomats were also informed on the number of political problems related to arms control by a research fellow at the Netherlands Institute of International Relations.

Briefings also were hosted by the Flemish Peace Institute on current export polices of the European Union and member states. Additionally, diplomats received briefings on the European Union Strategy Against the Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction, and on the Proliferation Security Initiative.

Hotzone said those who attended expressed “full satisfaction” with the course and planned to maintain ties with the company.
