Much progress has been made in the past decade towards eradicating anti-personnel mines worldwide. 156 States are now Parties to the Ottawa convention banning anti-personnel mines. Yet 39 States have still not joined the Convention. On its tenth anniversary, celebrated on 3 December 2007, the ICRC calls on all remaining states to accede to the Treaty. Even if many of the states remaining outside the treaty have modified their policies and practices in the light of the Convention, says the ICRC's Peter Herby, "until they join, this gives the message that’s its OK to use anti personnel landmines and in some sense legitimizes it for others."
