“Landmines pose a threat to various spheres of life, and people face its severe consequences,” said Gert Jan Koopman, the Director-General of the Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations of European Commission during the event of European Team Mine Action Initiative, APA reports.

The official of European Commission said that the 10 European Union member states are contributing to the initiative that was announced today and the number of those joining it will increase.

He noted that since 2020, EUR 8 million have been allocated within the framework of this initiative and in addition, EUR 2 million more are allocated today, and it is planned to increase this indicator to EUR 13 million in the future: "This initiative will cover mine victim support, mine awareness, mine clearance process.

We plan to take this initiative further. Landmines are one of the tragic legacies of conflict and its solution requires solidarity. I’m sure that this initiative will be a platform for us to mobilize international efforts,” – Koopman said.
