Letter: In Brief

Sir: Congratulations to George Robertson, on "consigning anti-personnel landmines to history" in pursuit of a global ban on these "obscene weapons" ("Army destroys its last stock of mines", 23 February). Can he now turn his attention to achieving the same objective with nuclear weapons at the non-proliferation treaty conference in April?
