The ban on cluster munitions – 10 years on

Montenegro free of cluster munitions today

Today, on August 1st 2020 Montenegro declares itself free of cluster munitions. The small bomblets – that sometimes can resemble toys in vivid colors – have posed a major danger to civilians in the country since the NATO bombing in 1999. Norwegian People's Aid has developed effective clearing methods and have assisted Montenegro in achieving its obligations to clear the insidious bomblets within the deadline set by the Cluster Munitions Convention. The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs has financed this work in Montenegro.
