Cluster Munition Ban Policy


The Republic of Equatorial Guinea has not acceded to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.

It is not known if accession to the convention is actively being considered, because Equatorial Guinea has not made any public statement on cluster munitions or engaged in any regional or international meetings on cluster munitions since 2007.[1]

Equatorial Guinea participated in one meeting of the Oslo Process that created the convention, where it called for an end to the production and use of cluster munitions and for the destruction of all stockpiles.[2]

Equatorial Guinea has not condemned the Syrian government’s use of cluster munitions. Equatorial Guinea is a State Party to the Mine Ban Treaty. It is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.

Use, production, transfer, and stockpiling

Equatorial Guinea is not known to have ever used, produced, transferred, or stockpiled cluster munitions.
