The nineteenth Plenary meeting of the Wassenaar Arrangement

, chaired by Ambassador Liselotte Plesner

of Denmark, was held in Vienna on 3 to 4 December 2013

The Arrangement has continued its efforts to contribute to international and regional

security and stability by promoting transparency and greater responsibility in the

transfer of conventional arms and dual use goods and technologies, thus preventing

destabilizing accumulations.

Participating States regularly conduct a Regional Views exercise

to exchange information on risks associated with transfers of arms and dual

use goods focusing on specific geographic regions. They have also agreed to conduct

further work on addressing new challenges, including emerging technologies of

concern, to keep pace with advances in technology, research

and innovation.
