UN’s Ban Ki-moon calls for end to UN disarmament stalemate | Livemint

Ban stressed the importance of the conference, which due to a consensus requirement has been deadlocked for four years because Pakistan has refused to allow talks to get started towards a treaty banning further production of fissile material.
