Peru has become the 81st States Party to the ATT, depositing its ratification instrument to the United Nations in New York on Tuesday, 16 February, 2016.

Ana Maria Watson, Peruvian Control Arms campaigner, and Director of Instituto de Seguridad y Derechos Humanos (ISDH) welcomed Peru to the growing group of States Parties in Latin America who have committed themselves to regulating the dangerous global arms trade, noting that Peru’s ratification to the Treaty makes it the 12th States Party from Latin America.

“Historically, Peru has been a strong, progressive partner in working towards regulating the arms trade as an advocate for the ATT, ” she said.

Control Arms will continue working towards universalisation of the treaty within Latin America and worldwide, particularly by supporting States Parties in their implementation efforts and by providing educational and procedural guidance on what Treaty accession constitutes.
