Mine Action

Contamination and Impact


Mongolia is not believed to be affected by antipersonnel mines. In its only voluntary Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report to date, Form C on the location of mined areas was marked as “Not Applicable.”[1]

Explosive remnants of war

Mongolia is said to have an extensive problem with explosive remnants of war, including both unexploded ordnance and abandoned explosive ordnance.[2] In 2008, for instance, abandoned antivehicle mines were reportedly discovered on several occasions.[3]

Mine Action Program

There is no mine action program in Mongolia and the current extent of any clearance is not known.
