The United States was urged Tuesday to take the lead among 10 nations yet to sign up to a global nuclear test ban treaty to take a significant step toward a goal of ridding the world of nuclear weapons. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon pushed for the 10 nations to sign up to the deal, saying it would ensure that North Korea's test blast last October is the world's final experiment with atomic weaponry. Although 140 countries have ratified the treaty, the accord will not enter into force until it has been ratified by all 44 states listed in an annex that took part in a 1996 disarmament conference and have nuclear power or research reactors.
