Use of Explosive Weapons in populated areas

Actions taken:

Austria consistently voices concerns about the devastating humanitarian impact of the use of explosive weapons with wide area effect in populated areas (EWIPA). Austria is heading the core group of states working out the text of a political declaration against the use of EWIPA. The Ministry of Europe, Integration and Foreign Affairs and its representatives continue to work on awareness-raising on this topic in multiple international fora.
