Russia's parliament on Friday ratified a global treaty aimed to prevent nuclear terrorism, a year after President Vladimir Putin became the first leader to sign the pact. "Ratification of this document answers to the interests of Russia and the entire international community," Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said. Russia and the United States "will together conduct work to create practical institutions for the implementation of the statutes of the document," Lavrov said. Lavrov said that five countries have ratified the treaty, signed by 107 nations, and that ratification by a total of 22 is needed for it to go into force.
