Contamination and Impact
Mongolia is not believed to be affected by antipersonnel mines. In its only voluntary Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report to date, Form C on the location of mined areas was marked as “Not Applicable.”
Explosive remnants of war
Mongolia is said to have an extensive problem with explosive remnants of war, including both unexploded ordnance and abandoned explosive ordnance. In 2008, for instance, abandoned antivehicle mines were reportedly discovered on several occasions.
Mine Action Program
There is no mine action program in Mongolia and the current extent of any clearance is not known.
