China had originally requested to put Keramine under international surveillance but later moved to postpone a decision to next year. The WMA had joined a group lobbying against the scheduling of Ketamine, saying that it is a powerful, easy to use and relatively safe anaesthetic drug. The full WMA media release can be read here.
