Closing Ceremony of the Croatia-Serbia cross border project supported by Spain, Canada and USA

08.05.2007

The certificate handover ceremony of demining project „Strošinci-Jamena future border crossing“ was held at the project area in Croatia-Serbia border region on Tuesday, 08 May 2007. The Main donor of the project was Kingdom of Spain, with support of Canada and United States of America donations. The certificates were handed over to representatives of Kingdom of Spain - Mr. Fernando Alonso Navaridas, Canada – Mr. Claude Demers and USA – Mr. Gregory Delawie by CROMAC and MACS directors.

This borderline demining project is a result of the successfull cooperation between Croatian and Serbian Mine Action Center in the field of demining. Demining operations implemented by NGO Norwegian People's Aid released 138.415 sq. meters of the land and found 31 mines and 2 UXO in the border area of Croatia and Serbia, in Croatian municipality Vrbanja, village of Strošinci and in Serbian municipality Šid, village of Jamena. The area includes arable land and area of the future interstate border crossing which both countries have decided to establish upon removal of the mines. The clearance of this land, will benefit the local population from both countries as they will be able to cultivate the land again. Demining will increase safety of the local residents as well and enable the efficient border control.
