US to eliminate landmines

Comment on this story


 Washington - The United States on Friday signaled its intent to eliminate its stockpile of anti-personnel landmines and to eventually join a global treaty banning their use, boosting efforts to rid the world of the weapons.

The high-profile announcement was made at a conference in Maputo, Mozambique, which was aimed at ultimately ensuring no armed forces use anti-personnel mines (APLs) by 2025.
