UNITED NATIONS (AP) - Iran and North Korea have blocked adoption of a global treaty that would regulate the multimillion-dollar international arms trade.

To be approved, the draft treaty needed support from all 193 U.N. member states.

Supporters of the treaty said that if the treaty was not adopted they would go to the General Assembly and put the draft to a vote where they expect overwhelming approval.
