Practice Relating to the Prohibition of Certain Types of Landmines
Malta first voiced its support for an immediate and total ban on anti-personnel mines on 2 May 1996 during the negotiations on the Amended Protocol II to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons. It endorsed the Final Declaration of the Brussels Conference on Anti-personnel Landmines in June 1997 and was a full participant in the Oslo negotiations in September 1997 which led to the adoption of a treaty banning anti-personnel landmines. Malta also voted in favour of the UN General Assembly resolutions in support of a ban on anti-personnel landmines in 1996, 1997 and 1998.
