UNITED NATIONS (AP) - The U.N. has set a deadline of today to come up with a global treaty on regulating the arms trade that the 193 member countries can agree on.
U.N. diplomats say the U.S. is virtually certain to go along with the latest text, but countries such as Iran, Egypt and India have serious concerns.
For years many governments have been pushing for such a treaty in hopes of keeping arms out of the hands of terrorists, insurgents and organized crime.
