Bhutan has not signed the Mine Ban Treaty or Amended Protocol II of the Convention on Conventional Weapons. It did not participate in the Ottawa Process. It did not attend any of the major diplomatic meetings on landmines in 1999 or 2000. It has, however, voted in favor of all pro-ban UN General Assembly resolutions since 1996, including the December 1999 resolution supporting the Mine Ban Treaty. Bhutan also sent a representative to the International Committee of the Red Cross’ South Asia Regional Seminar on Landmines, held in Sri Lanka 18-20 August 1999.

Bhutan does not use, produce, trade, or stockpile antipersonnel mines. Its territory is mine-free.
