Togo ratifies cluster bomb ban

Togo has become the 72nd State Party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions after it ratified the treaty on Friday, 22 June 2012.

Last month Togo co-organised a regional conference in neighbouring Ghana , aimed at increasing the number of African countries on board this humanitarian treaty, which bans all use, production, stockpile and transfer of deadly cluster munitions.

Togo representative Mr Komlan A. Narteh-Messan stated at the Accra conference, “It is impossible to sit back against the humanitarian disaster that is the use of cluster munitions in the world. This commitment is and remains one of the priorities of our foreign policy.”
