MONACO, Landmine Monitor Report 1999


Monaco signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 4 December 1997 and ratified it on 17 November 1998. In December 1996, Monaco voted for the UN General Assembly resolution calling on states to pursue vigorously an international agreement banning antipersonnel mines. Monaco endorsed the pro-Mine Ban Treaty Brussels Declaration in June 1997, and was a full participant in the Oslo negotiations in September 1997. Monaco also voted in favor of United Nations General Assembly resolutions supporting the Mine Ban Treaty in late 1997 and 1998. Monaco is a state party to the CCW (12 August 1997), but has not ratified amended Protocol II.

Monaco does not produce, trade, stockpile or use antipersonnel landmines, nor is it mine-affected.[1] Monaco has donated $27,519 to the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund for Assistance in Mine Clearance.[2]
