ANAMA PARTICIPATED IN THE VIENNA CONFERENCE ON CLUSTER MUNITIONS

On 4-7 December 2007, government delegations from about 138 countries and campaigners from 47 countries gathered in Vienna for the Third International Conference within the frame of the Oslo Declaration seeking global ban on cluster munitions. By the offer of the Azerbaijan Republic Ministry of Foreign Affairs, ANAMA Operations Manager Mr. Emil Hasanov was presented Azerbaijan in this conference. Cluster bombs have posed deadly threats in every conflict in which they have been used and have repeatedly caused excessive harm to civilians and this was the main discussion during the conference. As the follow up of the conferences, the next stage of the gathering will be held in New Zealand, Ireland and Oslo in 2008.
