Jeffrey LewisUN First Committee supports a VERIFIABLE fissile material cut-off

Rhianna Tyson, summarizing events in the UN First Committee, notes:

The overwhelming adoption of draft resolution L.34 on a verifiable FMCT, however, demonstrates that the international community is not yet ready to capitulate to the newest US-thrown wrench in the diplomacy cogs. Even though a draft resolution on an FMCT was put to vote for the first time in years, the overwhelming support for a verifiable FMCT illuminates a spark of dissent and courage to stand up to one, unruly superpower.

The vote was 147-1, with two abstentions (United Kingdom and Israel).
