International treaties determine what ammo is legally acceptable for armed conflict between sovereign states. The issue here is what is the best self-defense ammunition. LEO agencies and all reputable experts apparently agree that reliable JHP ammo is more efficient than FMJ, not that FMJ ammo isn't effective. It's just that JHP is more efficient and effective, all things being equal.
