Day Three Of The UN "Small Arms" Conference

Wednesday, June 28, 2006

A new draft of the UN "Small Arms" Conference "final" report became public on this third day of the meeting. Unfortunately, the draft contained provisions on two issues the U.S. considers "Red lines" and will not accept - a UN ban on transfer of arms to freedom fighters and international regulation of ammunition. The proposed document also calls for UN meetings on "small arms" up to and including another conference in 2012. The U.S. is opposed to these constant meetings which seem to rehash the same issues.
