Saint Kitts and Nevis

Key developments since 1999: Saint Kitts and Nevis became a State Party on 1 June 1999.

Saint Kitts and Nevis signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 2 December 1998, and the treaty entered into force for the country on 1 June 1999. It has not enacted domestic implementation legislation.[1] Saint Kitts and Nevis submitted its initial Article 7 transparency report on 27 November 1999, but has not provided any subsequent updates. While Saint Kitts and Nevis participated in the Ottawa Process, it has not attended any Mine Ban Treaty-related meetings since 1997. Saint Kitts and Nevis voted in support of pro-ban UN General Assembly resolutions between 1996 and 2000, but has since been absent during the vote. The country has never produced, transferred, stockpiled, or used antipersonnel mines, and is not mine-affected.
