The European Union condemned US President Donald Trump’s decision to reject the UN Arms Trade Treaty, warned of consequences.

“The decision by the United States to withdraw its signature will not contribute to the current efforts to promote the transparency of global arms trade, to prevent illicit trafficking and to counter arms smuggling,” EU spokeswoman Federica Mugherini said.

“The EU will continue to call upon all countries, particularly the major arms exporters and importers, to join without delay the Arms Trade Treaty,” said Mugherini.

She stressed that the unregulated arms trade continues to cause great suffering in many regions of the world and the exacerbation of conflicts, terrorism and organized crime, explaining that small arms kill about 500,000 people annually, as well as victims of other weapons.

“I officially announced that the United States will withdraw its signature from this treaty, and we will never allow foreign bureaucrats to violate the freedoms guaranteed by the Second Amendment to the US Constitution,” Trump said during a speech in Indianapolis before the influential US arms lobby. ”

The United Nations adopted the treaty in 2013, which aims to regulate trade in conventional and light weapons, even offensive tanks, fighters planes and warships.
