(Reuters) - Hours after U.S. President Barack Obama was re-elected, the United States backed a U.N. committee's call on Wednesday to renew debate over a draft international treaty to regulate the $70 billion global conventional arms trade.
U.N. delegates and gun control activists have complained that talks collapsed in July largely because Obama feared attacks from Republican rival Mitt Romney if his administration was seen as supporting the pact, a charge Washington denies.
The month-long talks at U.N. headquarters broke off after the United States - along with Russia and other major arms producers - said it had problems with the draft treaty and asked for more time.
But the U.N. General Assembly's disarmament committee moved quickly after Obama's win to approve a resolution calling for a new round of talks March 18-28. It passed with 157 votes in favor, none against and 18 abstentions.

Ammo sales are going to skyrocket!
I predict epic failure for Obama trying to enforce any UN gun control treaty on Americans.
Where the $%^&^ was the NRA in this election?
Stock went up today in Smith and Wesson —
The Springfield 1911 stainless steel barrel - the good one that your grandfather used...is for sale for $650...that side arm has served the US for decades - multiple wars - and the Marine Corp is now replacing the M9 with it...
...time we get back to our roots - time we stand up - and not let this country fall — arm yourself brothers...let them come - and watch them fall — we have 2014 on the horizon — there will be a day of reckoning...stand fast!
Oh, I forgot. This election result will cause their membership to skyrocket. All about the $$$.
That was sure a short honeymoon.
OK, but first, tell us what your predictions on the recent elections were?
Just like most here. And I suppose you’re going to hand your guns over when Obama comes for it?
Too bad Sandy didn’t sink the UN building into the east river.
Sorry, lost all my artillery in a horrible boating accident.
And that’s why FoxNews was so hot to declare 0bama the winner last night.. “GOOD FOR BUSINESS, Ta’Hell with America”.
When they come for the guns, gun owners won’t have any idea that’s what the LEOs are there for until it’s too late. There won’t be any announcement before it happens.
Thanks Romney for losing this election and putting us through 4 more years of hell. Telling us you were going to win by a landslide, no concession speech. What a damn joke! NO MORE LIBERAL REPUBLICANS EVER!!!!!! You squishy liberal Republicans gave us one liberal after another. Enough and there is NO WAY I am going to say that Romney ran a great campaign like some idiots are saying. He LOST by a lot of electoral votes. It is disgraceful!!!!
My blood pressure is going to have red squirting out my ears. One day in and the news is already BAD.
This Obama is pure evil.
Obama wants the UN to regulate our guns and the internet
what the hell are you talking about????? Nobody voted like that a short 24 hours ago. I think you must be drinking some heavy duty stuff.
But BO and Hillary love giving weapons to terrorists in Libya and Syria. This could be awkward.
Blue helmets make good targets. UN scumbags better not show up in my neck of the woods. There’s plenty of places here out in the desert to do the three S’s.
