SWITZERLAND DONATED ONCE MORE TO THE INTERNATIONAL TRUST FUND FOR DEMINING AND MINE VICTIMS ASSISTANCE (ITF)

18.10.2005
(Ljubljana, 18.10.2005) Memorandum of understanding was signed today between  International Trust Fund for Demining and Mine Victims Assistance (ITF) and Swiss Federation in amount 250.000,00 CHF, by Swiss Ambassador H.E. Mr. Paul Koller and Mr. Dorijan Marši?, director of ITF, at  the premisses of Swiss Embassy in Slovenija. Funds will be earmarked for demining operations in Bosnia and Herzegovina for support of two manual clearance teams within the project of Norwegian People's Aid.  Swiss Federation has already, over the past seven years, contributed to ITF more than 3 millions of american dollars and remains one of biggest and most regular donors to ITF.
Problem of eliminating mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) still remains very present in Bosnia and Herzegovina, which is the most mine polluted country in South-East Europe region. Mine affected areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina still cover more than 2.000 square kilometers of surface, which represents approximately 4 percent of total country size
