United Nations Resolutions

Every year, there is a United Nations General Assembly resolution in support of the total ban on antipersonnel landmines and the Mine Ban Treaty.

The ICBL-CMC calls on states to use the UN General Assembly and its First Committee each fall in New York, to take the following actions:

Ratify or accede to the Convention on Cluster Munitions and/or the Mine Ban Treaty at the annual UN Treaty Event where both treaties are being promoted.

Promote universalization and implementation of the Convention on Cluster Munitions and/or the Mine Ban Treaty by making special reference to these conventions in speeches at the UNGA high-level segment and First Committee discussions on conventional weapons.

Vote in favour of the annual UNGA Resolution on the Mine Ban Treaty.
