Nearly 300 delegates representing 80 States and over 30 international and non-governmental organisations concluded three days of meetings under the leadership of Norway.
The Intersessional Meetings sought to ascertain progress made since the Seventeenth Meeting of the States Parties in implementation of the provisions of the Convention.
The First Preparatory Meeting and Thematic Discussions provided guidance for the upcoming Oslo Review Conference and Oslo Action Plan.
Fourth Review Conference
On 24 May Norway held the First Preparatory Meeting for the Oslo Review Conference on a Mine-Free World.
The President presented his vision and plans for the three key substantive documents that will be adopted at the Conference: the Review of the Operation and Status of the Convention 2014-2019, the Oslo Action Plan and the Oslo Political Declaration.
The President recalled that eight new Committee members will need to be elected and reminded delegations to notify their interest by 21 June 2019.
