Noel Stott In a major step forward for both the peace process in Angola and for the struggle to eliminate landmines globally, the Angolan government, on 5 July 2002, ratified the 1997 Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti- Personnel Landmines and on Their Destruction.
