A major landmine meeting takes place in Jordan this November, providing a continued opportunity for the landmine campaign to increase its lobbying of governments in the Middle East that have not joined the Mine Ban Treaty. A couple of weeks ago, Kuwait acceded to the Mine Ban Treaty and on Wednesday August 15 IRAQ deposited its accession instrument with the United Nations (a real big, and very cool surprise!). The Al Jazeera piece is screening at a perfect time!
