On 20th February, the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute said that it is pleased to announce that it has expanded and improved its online database for Mapping Arms Trade Treaty (ATT)-relevant cooperation and assistance activities to include East Asia and SE Asia. The database now contains information on over 440 co-operation and assistance activities aimed at building capacity in areas relevant to ATT implementation in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, East Asia, and South East Asia since 2012. It remarks that, since the entry into force of the ATT, the low level of participation among states in Asia has been a particular cause for concern.

For information on the UN Arms Trade Treaty see –

The landmark Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), regulating the international trade in conventional arms – from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships – entered into force on 24th December 2014.
