Mine Ban Policy

The Republic of Paraguay signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 13 November 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 May 1999. Paraguay has never used, produced, exported, or imported antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes. Legislation to enforce the antipersonnel mine prohibition domestically was adopted on 1 May 2002.  Paraguay submitted its fifth Article 7 transparency report in April 2010, but has not submitted a subsequent report.

Paraguay did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty meetings in 2010 or the first half of 2011.

Paraguay is party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons and its Amended Protocol II on landmines and Protocol V on explosive remnants of war.
