Madagascar becomes 101st State Party to the CCM

The Republic of Madagascar deposited its instrument of ratification with the Secretary-General of the United Nations on 20 May 2017. The Convention will enter into force for Madagascar on 1 November 2017.

Ambassador Biontino of the Federal Republic of Germany, President of the Seventh Meeting of States Parties (7MSP), warmly welcomes Madagascar as the 101st State Party to the CCM and encourages States that have not ratified or acceded to the Convention on Cluster Munitions to consider joining.

The Republic of Madagascar’s ratification marks a significant step towards reaching the goal of 130 States Parties by the Second Review Conference in 2020.
