Council Decision in support of the Hague Code of Conduct and ballistic missile non-proliferation in the framework of the implementation of the EU Strategy against Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction

2. This Draft Council Decision has five objectives:

• promoting the subscription to the Code by an ever larger number of States and ultimately its universality;

• supporting the full implementation of the Code by subscribing States;

• promoting dialogue among subscribing and non-subscribing States with the aim of helping build confidence and transparency, encourage restraint and create more stability and security for all;

• reinforcing the Code's visibility and raising public awareness about the risks and threats posed by ballistic missile proliferation;

• exploring, in particular through academic studies, possibilities of enhancing the Code and of promoting cooperation between the Code and other relevant multilateral instruments, such as the Missile Technology Control Regime (MTCR) and UN Security Council Resolution 1540(2004).
