    b. To ensure that the arms produced, conventionally or through 3D Printing from countries with such technology would not spread to developing nations


    5. Encourages cooperation between the international community to curb terrorist activities, which are potentially linked to illegal arms trade, but not resort to military intervention by:

    a. Appealing countries to trace manufacturers across national borders and implement stringent rules to control their products
