Oman becomes the 162nd State Party to the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention

The Sultanate of Oman has become the latest State to join the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention, the landmark international treaty that bans the use, stockpiling, production and transfer of anti-personnel mines.
Oman deposited its accession instrument at a ceremony at the United Nations headquarters in New York earlier today, becoming the 162nd State to formally commit to the so-called Ottawa Convention.
“Oman is proud to have joined the vast majority of the world’s States in committing to eradicate anti-personnel mines, an indiscriminate weapon that has no place in the modern world,” said Ambassador Lyutha Sultan Al-Mughairy, Oman’s Permanent Representative to the United Nations.
“Oman’s accession demonstrates that all States from all parts of the world have a role to play in ending the suffering caused by these insidious weapons.”
Three of the six members of the Gulf Coordination Council (GCC) – Oman, Kuwait and Qatar – have now acceded to the Convention.
