Geneva, 1 December 2015 — Mozambique has become the latest State to declare that it has fulfilled its landmine clearance obligation under the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention, or Ottawa Convention, which bans the use, stockpile, production and transfer of these weapons.
The announcement was made by Pedro Comissário, Ambassador of Mozambique to the UN in Geneva during the second day of the Convention’s Fourteenth Meeting of the States Parties taking place until 4 December in Geneva.
§ In the 1990s, the devastation of anti-personnel mines in Mozambique meant that its plight drew world attention to the suffering caused by these weapons. A 1994 Human Rights Watch report noted that “the devastation caused by landmines in Mozambique – not only to the many civilian victims, but also to the socio-economic well-being of the nation – is undeniable and appalling. Clearance of mines will take many years, and probably decades.”
