The Arms Trade Treaty: Keeping the promise- ref. AV002B

Languages: English / French

The Arms Trade Treaty is a historic response to the human suffering caused by the widespread availability of weapons both during and after armed conflicts. For the first time ever in an international treaty, States must not transfer weapons or ammunition if they know that they would be used to commit certain war crimes.

The ICRC calls on all States to sign, ratify and implement the Arms Trade Treaty and fulfil its promise to reduce human suffering.
