Sri Lanka joins the Convention on Cluster Munitions
Published Date: 06/09/2018 (Thursday)

Sri Lankan officials deposited the accession instrument at the United Nations in New York on 1st March 2018 joining the increasing number of States that have undertaken to ban the weapon.

In accordance with its article 17 (2), the Convention will enter into force for Sri Lanka on 1 September 2018.

The Sri Lankan Campaign to Ban Landmines (SLCBL), led by its Coordinator, Mr. Vidya Abhayagunawardena, spared no efforts in advocating for the government of Sri Lanka to accede.

The Presidency of the Eighth Meeting of States Parties (8MSP), Nicaragua, warmly welcomes Sri Lanka as the 103rd State Party to the CCM and encourages other States that have not ratified or acceded to the Convention on Cluster Munitions to consider joining the Convention as a matter of priority.

Thematic coordination

The Coordination Committee is comprised of the Presidency assisted by the Implementation Support Unit with the added support of 14 States Parties assisting in performing the mandate of overseeing the effective implementation of the CCM as outlined in the Dubrovnik Action Plan adopted at the First Review Conference in 2015.

The Committee is chaired by the President. The Coordinating Committee members are elected at MSPs and serve for a period of 2 years each. Of these, one year overlaps with the incoming coordinators to ensure smooth continuity of the thematic work.
