Eslovaquia recién firma el Tratado de Comercio de Armas
June 18, 2013

Miroslav Lajčák, Viceprimer Ministro y ministro de Relaciones Exteriores y Asuntos Europeos de la República Eslovaca, firmó el Tratado de Comercio de Armas en la ONU el 10 de junio de 2013. De este modo, Eslovaquia se convierte en el 72º signatario de este tratado, el primero de este tipo destinado a regular y controlar el comercio y la transferencia internacional de armas y tecnología militar. El ministro Lajčák se reunió con la Secretaria General Adjunta para Asuntos Jurídicos, Patricia O’Brien, y con la Alta Representante de las Naciones Unidas para Asuntos de Desarme, Angela Kane, con quienes analizó temas de actualidad en el ámbito del control de armamentos, el desarme y la no proliferación de las armas de destrucción masiva. En el curso de las conversaciones, el ministro confirmó la plena participación y el apoyo permanente de la República Eslovaca para los principales objetivos de este programa. “Considero que se debe hacer hincapié en la necesidad imperiosa de que se ratifique el tratado, a fin de que se ponga en práctica tan pronto como sea posible”, declaró el jefe de la diplomacia eslovaca.

Este tratado representa un hito importante en la regulación y el control del comercio mundial en este ámbito. La República Eslovaca colaboró activamente en la redacción del tratado, que tiene por objeto adoptar normas generales, sólidas y jurídicamente vinculantes para regular eficazmente el comercio mundial de armas. El objetivo esencial es prevenir la entrega de armas a personas no autorizadas en las zonas de conflicto, o a organizaciones delictivas y terroristas.
