They said the country would ratify the latest four protocols to battle terrorism on October 15. But Switzerland believes there is an urgent need to draw up an international convention to define the concept clearly in international law.

With an international disarmament conference in Oslo two months away, the Swiss also confirmed their intention to destroy all cluster bombs in the country's arsenals within eight years.

As for nuclear weapons, Switzerland believes that nuclear nations should no longer keep their missiles on constant alert but be subject to international regulations.
