Problem of remnants of war

The General Assembly,

Recalling its resolutions 2995 (XXVII), 2996 (XXVII) and 2997 (XXVII) of 15 December 1972, pertaining to co-operation among States in the field of the environment, the international responsibility of States in protecting the environment and the establishment of the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme,

Recalling also its resolutions 3435 (XXX) of 9 December 1975 and 35/71 of 5 December 1980, Recalling further decisions 80 (IV) of 9 April 1976, 101 (V) of 25 May 1977 and 9/5 of 25 May 1981 of the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme,

Convinced that the removal of remnants of war should be the responsibility of the countries that implanted them and should be carried out at their expense,

1. Takes note of the report of the Secretary-General;

2. Regrets that no real action has been taken to solve the problem of remnants of war despite the various resolutions and decisions adopted by both the General Assembly and the Governing Council of the United Nations Environment Programme;

3. Reiterates its support for the demand of the States affected by the implantation of mines and the presence of other remnants of war on their lands for compensation for the losses incurred from the States responsible for those remnants;

4. Appeals to all States, particularly those responsible for the presence of remnants of war in developing countries, to co-operate with the Secretary-General in order to enable him to make specific and effective recommendations for solving the problem of remnants of war;

5. Requests the Secretary-General to continue his contacts and consultations with Member States pursuant to General Assembly resolution 35/71 and to collate all relevant information received from States, in order to find ways and means, including the possibility of convening a conference under the auspices of the United Nations, for solving the problem of remnants of war, and to report to the Assembly at its thirty-seventh session.
