UNITED NATIONS, Sept 24 (Reuters) - U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry will sign the Arms Trade Treaty regulating the international trade in conventional arms, diplomats from two countries said on Tuesday.
The diplomats said Kerry would sign the treaty on Wednesday on the sidelines of the annual U.N. General Assembly in New York.
On April 2, the U.N. General Assembly adopted the treaty by a vote of 154 for, including the United States, three against and 23 abstentions. The no votes were cast by Iran, North Korea and Syria, U.N. records show. (Reporting by Paul Eckert; Editing by Bill Trott)
