Finland declared on Wednesday that it has concluded the destruction of its remaining stockpiled anti-personnel mines ahead of the committed deadline.

The announcement was made on the third day of the Fourteenth Meeting of the States Parties to the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention, or Ottawa Convention, taking place until Dec. 4 here at the UN headquarters in Geneva.

"Finland is proud to declare that the destruction process of well over 1 million stockpiled mines which began in 2012 is now complete," Paivi Kairamo, Ambassador of Finland to the United Nations in Geneva, announced.

The Ottawa Convention was adopted in Oslo in 1997, opened for signature in Ottawa the same year and entered into force in 1999.
