US allocates $2 million for demining operations affected by Karabakh war

BAKU. TurkicWorld:

US will provide $2,000,000 assistance for humanitarian demining operations in areas affected by the fall 2020 intensive fighting between Armenian and Azerbaijani forces, TurkicWorld reports citing US Department of State.

"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.

Building on the $500,000 announced in November 2021, new U.S. funding will continue to strengthen the technical capacity of demining organizations to clear deadly landmines and unexploded ordnance. These efforts play a critical role 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.
