Israel in recent days signed the UN’s Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), in which the country commits not to sell weapons to terrorists and criminal groups. Israel has taken on provisional membership in the treaty, and will review the matter after a 24 month test membership period. The treaty became effective on December 24, and has been signed by 130 states.
Among the countries that have so far refused to sign the resolution are Iran, Syria, North Korea, and Venezuela.
