Practice Relating to Rule 81. Restrictions on the Use of Landmines
Upon acceptance of the 1996 Amended Protocol II to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons, Ireland stated:
The provisions of the amended Protocol which by their contents or nature may be applied also in peacetime, shall be observed at all times …
It is the understanding of Ireland that the word “primarily” is included in article 2, paragraph 3 of the amended Protocol to clarify that mines designed to be detonated by the presence, proximity or contact of a vehicle as opposed to a person, that are equipped with anti-handling devices are not considered anti-personnel mines as a result of being so equipped.
