From the ICBL
All European Union are now on board — the United States is the lone hold out among NATO states.
On 27 December at the United Nations in New York, Poland became the 161st nation to join the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty. “We warmly welcome Poland as a full member of the mine ban community. This ratification shows that all countries can and should renounce antipersonnel landmines forever. We hope other countries will now follow in Poland’s footsteps, particularly the US.” said Kasia Derlicka, ICBL Director.
