January 15, 1997: Diana, Princess of Wales worked to de-mine regions of Southern Angola. Her personal support is said to have been a significant factor in encouraging Britain and other countries to support the Ottawa Treaty, a bid to introduce a ban on the use of anti-personnel landmines. Her contributions were noted in Robin Cook's speech when he brought the second reading of the landmine bill to the House in 1998.

"The world is too little aware of the waste of life, limb and land which anti-personnel landmines are causing among some of the poorest people on earth...in Angola there are 15 million land mines in a population of 10 million...one in every 334 members of the population is an amputee! That is something to which the world should urgently turn its conscience" - Princess Diana
