Liechtenstein, Landmine Monitor Report 2003


Liechtenstein signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 5 October 1999, and became a State Party on 1 April 2000. Legislation to implement the treaty was passed on 9 September 1999. Liechtenstein did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty-related meetings in 2002 or the first half of 2003, but on 22 November 2002, Liechtenstein voted in favor of UN General Assembly Resolution 57/74, which calls for universalization and implementation of the Mine Ban Treaty. Liechtenstein submitted its annual Article 7 transparency report in April 2003, covering calendar year 2002, and indicated no change from previous reports. This is the country’s fourth Article 7 report.[1]

Liechtenstein is a party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons and its Amended Protocol II, and submitted its annual report under Article 13 of the Protocol on 27 June 2002. It did not attend the Fourth Annual Conference of the States Parties to the Protocol in December 2002.

Landmine Monitor did not find any record of financial contributions by Liechtenstein to mine action in 2002.
