German second contribution to ITF in 2007

The International Trust Fund for Demining and Mine Victims Assistance received a donation from the Federal Republic of Germany in the amount of 500.000,00 EUR for the second time this year. The Memorandum of Understanding was signed today by H.E. Dr. Hans – Joachim Goetz, German Ambassador to Slovenia and Mr.Goran Ga?nik, ITF Director. This is already 11th German donation to ITF, this time earmarked for demining activities in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia.

Demining is still the key element for a successful reconstruction and socio-economic development of the mine affected areas. One of the most mine-contaminated countries in Europe and the world is still Bosnia and Herzegovina which will receive 300.000,00 EUR from the latest donation provided by Germany. Additional 200.000,00 EUR shall be earmarked for the implementation of demining programme in Serbia, which Germany supports since 2003.

Germany remains one of the most important donors to the ITF in the field of demining operations in SE Europe. One of the crucial issues in the normalization of the situation in the region of SE Europe is the demining of mine and UXO contaminated areas.
