Fugitive weapons are still one of the most dangerous problems facing Iraq, despite the pledges made by successive governments since 2003, to work to keep weapons in the hands of the state.
With the passage of time, the problem of loose weapons deepens, the arsenals of militias and tribes are growing, and the black market spread in Iraq with various types of light, medium and even heavy weapons is flourishing.
This comes amid warnings of the consequences of continued unchecked arms, the weak government position towards armed groups, the increase in tribal conflicts, and the great security chaos they cause.
As part of its efforts to work on disarmament, the United Nations set the week of disarmament from 24 to 30 October of each year, which is the anniversary of the founding of the United Nations.
The international organization wants this week to enhance awareness and frame it on disarmament issues and their overall importance.
