Federated States of Micronesia, Landmine Monitor Report 2003

Federated States of Micronesia

The Federated States of Micronesia (FSM) has not acceded to the Mine Ban Treaty and, as in previous years, there does not appear to have been any progress toward accession during the reporting period. FSM has abstained from voting on every pro-landmine ban UN General Assembly Resolution since 1996, including Resolution 57/74 in November 2002. FSM has never used, produced or stockpiled antipersonnel mines.[1]
