The development, production and use of biological and chemical weapons are
prohibited by international treaties to which most states of the world have subscribed:
the 1925 Geneva Protocol,
the 1972 Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention,
the 1993 Chemical Weapons Convention.
Not all states have joined, however, and
valid concerns remain that some states may yet resort to the weapons. Moreover,
non-state entities may try to gain access to the weapons for purposes of terrorism.
