"If international organizations do not provide help to Azerbaijan, over 1.5 billion manats will be needed to demine our territories,” Tahir Mirkishili, Chairman of Milli Majlis Committee on Economic Policy, Industry and Entrepreneurship, said at a public hearing at the Parliament, APA reports.

“According to UN estimates, decontamination of 1 mine costs 300-1500 dollars. This includes the location of the mine, its complexity, etc. "The demining process itself is a serious issue," the committee chair noted.
