U.S. provides over $30.8 million for mine and UXO clearance in Azerbaijan


From 1999 to 2016, the U.S. provided more than $30.8 million in Conventional Weapons Destruction programs in Azerbaijan aimed at mine and UXO clearance, training, equipment procurement, and expanding humanitarian demining teams, including mine detection dog teams, the U.S. Embassy in Baku tweeted on Wednesday.

 

“U.S. funds in CWD were primarily directed through the NATO Support and Procurement Agency to the Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action and significantly reduced the area of contamination, restoring access to land and infrastructure for the community,” the embassy tweeted.
