Prime Minister Dr Mahathir Mohamad today called on all nations to desist from engaging in an armaments race as it would bring about devastating consequences on developing countries in the world..

Speaking at the Kuala Lumpur World Peace Conference, Mahathir said competitive stockpiling has encouraged arms dealers to continue developing newer and more devastating weapons as evident from the range of weapons used in recent wars such as cluster bombs, incendiary bombs, dirty bombs, as well as heat-seeking missiles.
