US allocates $2 million for demining Karabakh

    KARABAKH  12 September 2022 - 09:16

    The United States has allocated $2 million for mine clearance operations in areas affected by the Armenian-Azerbaijani conflict in 2020.

    The US State Department press service made the remarks in a statement posted on its website on September 12, Caliber.Az reports.

    "To promote regional peace and cooperation, the United States is pleased to announce $2,000,000 for humanitarian demining operations in areas affected by the fall 2020 intensive fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces in the South Caucasus.  Landmines and unexploded ordnance across the conflict zone continue to kill and maim civilians, block economic development, and impede the safe return of displaced communities.

    Building on the $500,000 announced in November 2021, new US funding will continue to strengthen the technical capacity of demining organisations to clear deadly landmines and unexploded ordnance.  These efforts play a critical role in bolstering human security and enabling displaced communities to return to their homes and rebuild their lives safely.

    The United States is the world's largest single financial supporter of conventional weapons destruction, investing over $4.7 billion in more than 100 countries since 1993 to promote international peace and security by addressing the threats that landmines and unexploded ordnance pose to civilians," the statement said.
