Equatorial Guinea

Mine Ban Policy

Last updated: 02 October 2012

The Republic of Equatorial Guinea acceded to the Mine Ban Treaty on 16 September 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. Equatorial Guinea has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty. Equatorial Guinea has not submitted its initial Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report, which was due 28 August 1999. Equatorial Guinea did not attend any Mine Ban Treaty meetings in 2011 or the first half of 2012.

Equatorial Guinea has never produced antipersonnel mines. It has not formally declared the presence or absence of stockpiled antipersonnel mines, but it is not believed to possess a stockpile. Authorities have never responded to a Monitor inquiry into an allegation of antipersonnel mine use on the island of Bioko in 2004.

Equatorial Guinea is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons.
