Andorra, Landmine Monitor Report 2003


Andorra signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 29 June 1998, and became a State Party on 1 March 1999. It has not introduced legislation to implement the treaty, but has regulations governing the use and traffic in arms.[1] Andorra’s initial Article 7 report, provided on 12 July 2000, notes that it has never produced or possessed antipersonnel mines and is not mine-affected.[2] Andorra did not submit an annual Article 7 transparency report in 2001, 2002 or the first half of 2003. It did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty related meetings in 2002 or the first half of 2003, but voted in favor of UN General Assembly Resolution 57/74 on 22 November 2002, supporting universalization and implementation of the Mine Ban Treaty. Landmine Monitor did not find any record of financial contributions to mine action by Andorra in 2002 or the first half of 2003.
