Practice Relating to Rule 36. Demilitarized Zones
Madagascar’s Military Manual (1994) provides that the term “demilitarized zone” means a zone from which all combatants as well as all mobile weapons and military material have been evacuated, and in which fixed military establishments are not used for harmful purposes, no hostile act can be committed by the authorities and the population, and all activities linked to the military effort have ceased. It states that demilitarized zones are created by agreement between the parties concerned.
