According to him, Azerbaijan supports the inclusion of a goal of demining into the UN's globally significant program: "There are currently 100-200 million antipersonnel landmines planted in 60-70 countries of the world.

To understand the magnitude of the scale, it's important to know that during the coronavirus pandemic, according to figures released by international organizations, the number of people who lost their lives was 15 million."

Ali Ahmadov noted that Azerbaijan is one of the countries that is suffering from the threat of landmines. There are 1.5 million landmines planted in the country's territory, resulting in ongoing loss of lives among innocent civilians. In this regard, Azerbaijan will support this SDG goal.
