Angola: Italy Releases Funds for De-Mining in Angola

Luanda — The government of Italy released EURO 400.000 to be implemented in de-mining projects in Angola, said on Thursday the Italian ambassador to Angola, Giuseppe Mistretta.

According to a press note from the Italian Embassy in Angola that reached Angop, this contribution is part of Italy' government efforts to cooperate in de-mining actions of the country as it was done before, either bilaterally or multilateral.

Data from the Government De-mining Commission shows that the de-mining operators of the state and from non-governmental organizations, as well as private companies cleared and cleaned up a useful area exceeding 4300 square kilometres in the development of the Government Programme for 2010/2011.

The de-mining operators of the State include Angola Armed Forces (FAA), the National Reconstruction Office (GRN), National De-mining Institute (INAD) and the Border Police.
