December 10, 1997.  The Norwegian Nobel Committee meets the representants from International Campaign to Ban Landmines, and its coordinator Jody Williams, in Oslo. Speech from ICBL by Rae McGrath.
Francis Sejersted, Professor, member of the Norwegian Nobel Committee:
An important step has been taken. The vast problem of landmines has effectively been placed on the international agenda. The worldwide opinion has been formed that something must be done about the problem. And the practical work of freeing the world from landmines has begun. It is in admiration, and in gratitude for their efforts to achieve that aim that we honour the ICBL and Jody Williams today with the Nobel Peace Prize for 1997. The vast and laborious task of putting an end to the production and sale of mines, destroying existing mines, and helping the victims has, however, only just begun. Let us therefore also express the hope that the process will win still greater support, so that the work can be intensified and a world without anti-personnel mines can become a reality in the foreseeable future.
Amputee Ambassador Tun Channareth:
  • We beg the world to stop making mines
  • We beg the world to stop laying mines
  • We beg the world to give money for demining and development so that we can rebuild our lives, our communities, our villages and our countries again!
