On 25 May 2000, acting without a vote, the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on the Sale of Children, Child Prostitution and Child Pornography and the Optional Protocol to the Convention on the Rights of the Child on Involvement of Children in Armed Conflict.

The latter prohibits the use of children under 18 years in combat.
