    Default Iran, NKorea, Syria Block Arms Trade Treaty

    UNITED NATIONS (AP) Iran, North Korea and Syria blocked adoption Thursday of a U.N. treaty that would regulate the multibillion-dollar international arms trade which required agreement by all 193 U.N. member states.
    In an unexpected twist, Mexico proposed that the conference go ahead and adopt the treaty Thursday without the support of the three countries, saying there was no definition of "consensus." Delegates then started debating whether this should be done and several countries supported Mexico, but the Russian delegation called the proposal "a manipulation of consensus" and objected.

    Strange, because this yesterday Ahmadinejad said that Iran would fully back the treaty.
