  • Early Swiss cross.svg Flag of the Leauge of Nations (Square) (Gem of the Ocean).svg March 28ᵀᴴ, 2023 GENEVA, Switzerland In a historic move aimed at curbing the illegal diamond trade, the League of Nations has signed an act that prohibits the direct or indirect import of all rough diamonds from conflict zones. The act was signed by representatives from the League of Nations member states at a summit held in Geneva, Switzerland; and the signing ceremony was attended by diplomats, international NGOs, and representatives from the diamond industry. The act aims to prevent the sale of conflict diamonds, which are also known as blood diamonds; as these diamonds are mined in war zones, often by slave labor, and their sale is used to finance armed conflicts and human rights abuses. Under the act, member states are required to certify that any imported rough diamonds are from legitimate sources and not from conflict zones; and the act also requires that diamond exporting countries implement strict controls to prevent the export of conflict diamonds. The League of Nations has been working towards the goal of ending the trade in conflict diamonds for several years, and the signing of this act marks a significant step forward in achieving this goal and sends a clear message to diamond producers and traders that the international community will not tolerate the sale of blood diamonds.
