Use of Force, Arms Control, Disarmament, Nonproliferation in 2011
United States views on international law (based on the document “Digest of U.S. Practice in International Law”): In August 2011, the State Department released the unclassified version of its report to Congress on Adherence to and Compliance with Arms Control, Nonproliferation, and Disarmament Agreements and Commitments, submitted pursuant to Section 403 of the Arms Control and Disarmament Act, as amended, 22 U.S.C. § 2593a. The report contained four parts. Part I addressed U.S. compliance with arms control agreements. Part II discussed compliance by Russia and other successor states of the Soviet Union with treaties and agreements the United States concluded bilaterally with the Soviet Union. Part III assessed compliance by other countries that are parties to multilateral agreements with the United States. And Part IV covered compliance with less formal commitments related to arms control, nonproliferation, or disarmament, such as the Missile Technology Control Regime (“MTCR”). The 2011 report covered the period from January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2010. The report is available at (internet link) state.gov/documents/organization/170652.pdf.
