Practice Relating to the Prohibition of Certain Types of Landmines
In 1995, during a debate in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, Ecuador encouraged “new international efforts to find solutions to the problems caused by these weapons with a view to their total elimination”.

Ecuador participated in all of the preparatory meetings for the adoption of a treaty banning anti-personnel landmines, endorsed the Final Declaration of the Brussels Conference on Anti-personnel Landmines in June 1997, and took part in the Oslo negotiations in September 1997 which led to the adoption of a treaty banning anti-personnel landmines. It also voted in favour of the UN General Assembly resolutions in support of a ban on anti-personnel landmines in 1996, 1997 and 1998, as well as the relevant OAS resolutions.
