Military ammunition surplus in Doboj, 27 June 2013. (United Nations)
The end of the Cold War resulted in a huge amount of surplus weapons becoming available illegally. The OSCE, through its field operations, helps to stop the spread of such weapons and offers assistance with their destruction. The Forum for Security Co-operation, which is the main OSCE body dealing with politico-military aspects of security, contributes to these efforts by developing documents regulating transfers of conventional arms and establishing principles governing non-proliferation.
