International Arms Trade Treaty

French President Jacques Chirac issued his government's support for an international Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) during a speech on 20 June. This is an important victory for the campaign as France is a major arms exporter. Following the French announcement, the governments of Norway and Germany also issued strong support for the ATT. This followed similar statements from Ghana and Senegal issued over the last few weeks. Learn more about international arms trade.
