Cluster Munition Ban Policy
Non-signatory Equatorial Guinea has never publicly commented on cluster munitions or its position on joining the Convention on Cluster Munitions. It has never attended a meeting of the convention. However, it has voted in favor of key annual United Nations (UN) resolutions promoting the convention, most recently in December 2021. Equatorial Guinea is not known to have ever used, produced, transferred, or stockpiled cluster munitions.
The Republic of Equatorial Guinea has not acceded to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.
The government’s position on joining the convention remains unknown, as Equatorial Guinea has never commented publicly on cluster munitions or its position on acceding to the convention.
Equatorial Guinea participated in one meeting of the Oslo Process that created the convention, where it called for an end to the production and use of cluster munitions, and for the destruction of all stockpiles.
Equatorial Guinea has been invited to, but never participated in, meetings of the Convention on Cluster Munitions.
In December 2021, Equatorial Guinea voted in favor of the key United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) resolution that urged states outside the Convention on Cluster Munitions to “join as soon as possible.”
Equatorial Guinea is a State Party to the Mine Ban Treaty. It is not party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons (CCW).
