China finalises bid to join ATT

by Jon Grevatt

China has finalised “all legal procedures” to join the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT), the Chinese Ministry of Foreign Affairs has confirmed.

It said on 7 July that Zhang Jun, China’s permanent representative to the United Nations, has now submitted to the UN China’s ‘Instrument of Accession to the ATT’, which outlines its alignment with conditions of membership.

“This marked China’s completion of all legal procedures to join this treaty, which will become effective for China [in] 90 days,” the foreign ministry said in a statement. China’s top legislative body voted in favour of ATT membership in mid-June.
