Current President

Let me welcome you to the official website of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). The ATT is the first global, legally binding instrument to regulate the international trade in conventional arms. It is an invaluable tool to promote cooperation, transparency and responsible action by States Parties in the arms trade. It also aims to prevent and eradicate the illicit trade in conventional arms and prevent their diversion to unauthorized users and uses.

As President of the Sixth Conference of the States Parties, I would like to invite you to join our efforts to achieve universalization and full implementation of the treaty. Only through the establishment of the highest standards of the international trade of conventional weapons and the application of effective measures to prevent and eradicate diversion will we achieve the final purpose of the treaty: reducing human suffering and contributing to peace, security and international and regional stability.

In that sense, enhancing transparency and information sharing to prevent and eradicate diversion of conventional weapons to the illicit market will be a focus theme of my Presidency.

I look forward to working with all the States Parties, signatory and observer States as well as other stakeholders to achieve the objectives of the Treaty.
