Kazakhstan
Practice Relating to the Prohibition of Certain Types of Landmines
In 2000, during a debate in the First Committee of the UN General Assembly, Kazakhstan stated:
Kazakhstan fully supports the humanitarian orientation of the Ottawa Convention, whose goal is the complete elimination of anti-personnel mines … However, in our view, the movement for the complete prohibition of anti-personnel mines should be an ongoing and step-by-step process based on the mine Protocol to the Convention on inhumane weapons.
