    UN - Global arms embargoes have been a total failure

    Today's Independent reports on the complete failure of global arms embargoes. Companies all over the world, including some in Britain have been responsible for breaching embargoes, yet virtually nothing has been done by nations to prosecute those responsible:

    Four UK companies were named in UN embargo reports in the past 10 years. None are known to have faced prosecution by the British government.

    The proposed treaty has the backing of 45 countries, including the UK and other members of the EU as well as Britain's Defence Manufacturers Association. However, the US, Russia and China, responsible for a large percentage of world arms exports, are yet to give support.
