UNITED NATIONS, September 23 /TASS/. Russia hopes that the next U.S. president will be more obstinate than Barack Obama and will succeed in ratifying the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty (CTBT), Russian Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Friday after the UN Security Council had adopted a resolution in support of CTBT.
"We regret that Barack Obama did not have a pen, with which Bill Clinton (the 42nd president of the United States) signed that treaty, of which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry told us today, in his hands and the United States has failed to ratify the CTBT. Hopefully, the next president of the United States will be more obstinate," the diplomat stressed.
