Cluster Munition Ban Policy

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

Uzbekistan did not participate in the Oslo Process that created the convention. It has never attended a meeting on cluster munitions or made a public statement on cluster munitions.

Uzbekistan is not party to the Mine Ban Treaty. It is party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.

Uzbekistan is not known to have produced or exported cluster munitions. It inherited a stockpile of cluster munitions from the Soviet Union. Jane’s Information Group reports that KMG-U dispensers are in service with the state’s air force.[1] Uzbekistan also possesses Grad 122mm and Uragan 220mm surface-to-surface rockets, but it is not known if these include versions with submunition payloads.[2]
