Oslo Review Conference on a Mine-Free World

On 3 April, Norway hosted an informal meeting on preparations for the Fourth Review Conference.

Norway is highly encouraging input from all Convention stakeholders in the drafting process --now underway-- of the three substantive documents of the Review Conference.

This is particularly important as they will guide States Parties’ efforts for the next 5 years until 2024. The President is also accepting letters of interest to fill the various positions in the Convention Committees.
