The European Union (EU) expressed its disappointment towards United States President Donald Trump for rejecting to join the Arms Trade Treaty.

The European Union has warned that United States President Donald J. Trump’s refusal of a United Nations (UN) treaty intended to regulate the global arms trade would hamper the global fight against illicit weapons trafficking.

Mogherini also said, the European Union will continue to call on all states, and specifically the main arms exporters and importers, to join the Arms Trade Treaty without delay.
