These endeavours have not been completely random, but have generally aimed at putting beyond use and out of circulation weapons that may breach the law of armed confict (LOAC).

Which problematic weapons should be next in line for a treaty ban or restriction? Many believe that prime candidates are weapons containing depleted uranium.
