Thailand at the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention Intersessional Meeting 2023
Thailand’s delegation actively participated in the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention Intersessional Meeting 2023 in Geneva during 19-21 June 2023.
As the Chair of the Committee of Enhancement of Cooperation and Assistance, Thailand briefed the meeting about the Committee’s on-going work, in particular the individualized approach, the Cooperation and Assistance Fund and the online reporting-tools, which greatly contributed to the mine affected States’ implementation of the Convention.
The Committee of Enhancement of Cooperation and Assistance hosted a thematic discussion on “the Cooperation and Assistance and the Oslo Action Plan – Towards improved cooperation and assistance” to take stock of what we have done and what we could do more to support States Parties in fulfilling obligations under Article 5 and ensure Article 6’s full implementation. At the side line of the meeting, the Committee also co-hosted an Individualized Approach Meeting for Senegal with selected invited States, international organizations and members of civil society in the position to provide assistance.
In national capacity, a representative of Thailand Mine Action Center (TMAC) delivered a national statement highlighting our achievement in national implementation of the Convention and on-going cooperation and assistance at regional and international levels. The statement also reaffirmed Thailand’s readiness to work with Cambodia toward fulfilling our obligations under Article 5 to demining the only contaminated area along the Thailand-Cambodia border. At the margin of the meeting, TMAC also gave several briefings to interested State Parties on Thailand’s national mine action platform.
Thailand has been an active member of the Convention since becoming State Party in 1999 and was the President of the fifth Meeting of the State Parties (5MSP) in 2002. Within the past decade, Thailand has played an active role in advancing the work of the Convention through participating in the work of various committees, such as Standing Committee on Resources, Cooperation and Assistance (2012-2013), Committee on Victim Assistance (2016-2017 and 2020-2021), and Committee on the Enhancement of Cooperation and Assistance (2018-2019 and 2022-2023).
