Comments of the

In particular we welcome the unambiguous definition of an anti-personnel mine. The following comments reflect the views of the ICRC on the Austrian text. In preparing this document we have taken into account statements on the Austrian text made by States during the first two days of the Brussels Conference.

This document proposes specific provisions concerning mine victims and mine awareness – subjects which received considerable attention at the Brussels Conference. Proposals for new text on these subjects are contained under Article 1 (general obligations), a new Article 7 (labeled 6 bis) and under Article 8 (para. 3).
