    The Falklands have been declared free of landmines almost 40 years after the 1982 conflict between the UK and Argentina over the South Atlantic islands ended. A UK-funded mine clearing program that started in 2009 has ended three years ahead of schedule. With the completion of the program, no anti-personnel mines will remain on British soil. The removal of the mines laid during the conflict with Argentina means the UK has now met its obligations set by the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention.
