Statement by H.E. Mr. Motohide Yoshikawa

Permanent Representative of Japan to the United Nations

At the Presentation of the Instrument of Acceptance

of the Arms Trade Treaty by Japan

9 May 2014

 

 

It is a great pleasure for me to deposit today the instrument of acceptance of the Arms Trade Treaty by the Government of Japan.

 

 

As one of the Treaty’s co-authors, Japan is very proud to have been able to make a substantial contribution to the ATT.

 

 

The Diet of Japan approved the Treaty two weeks ago, and the final official decision to accept the Treaty was made today by a Cabinet decision.

 

 

Taking this opportunity, I would like to encourage all countries that have not yet done so, to sign and ratify the Treaty as soon as possible.

 

I would also like to reaffirm our commitment to play an active and constructive role with a view to the Treaty’s early entry into force and its effective implementation.
