Country Reports
Niue, Landmine Monitor Report 2004


Key developments since 1999: Niue became a State Party on 1 March 1999.

Niue signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997. It ratified the treaty on 15 April 1998, the ninth country to do so, and the agreement entered into force on 1 March 1999. All three Article 7 reports submitted by Niue are “nil” reports as the country has never produced, transferred, used, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, and is not mine-affected.[1] The government has not enacted domestic legislation to implement the treaty. Niue is not eligible to vote on the annual pro-mine ban resolutions in the General Assembly as it is not a member of the United Nations.
