<Previous | Next>


Fiji signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified on 10 June 1998. The treaty entered into force for Fiji on 1 March 1999. It has not yet enacted domestic implementation legislation. It submitted its first Article 7 transparency report on 12 November 1999; this was in essence a “nil” report. It has not submitted any subsequent annual Article 7 reports. Fiji voted for UN General Assembly Resolution 55/33V. It is believed that Fiji has never produced, transferred, or used antipersonnel mines. Fiji declared no stockpile of antipersonnel mines, including for training, in its Article 7 transparency report. The Permanent Secretary for the Prime Minister acknowledged receipt of a request for updated information from Landmine Monitor but no response was received by the time of publication.[1]
