More than 10,000 antipersonnel mines were destroyed by the Polisario Front in the Sahrawi occupied territories since 2005, Representative of Polisario Front in the United Kingdom Limam Mohamed Ali said Tuesday in an interview to APS.
The Sahrawi Arab Democratic Republic (SADR) joined in 2005 "Geneva Call," a treaty which condemns the use, the acquisition, the production and the transfer of antipersonnel mines, said the source.
This treaty encourages the activities in favour of mine clearing of contaminated areas and assistance of victims of antipersonnel mines.
"Since 2005, we have destroyed more than 10,000 antipersonnel mines landed by Morocco in our territories. We are working in collaboration with Action on Armed Violence (AOAV), which is a non-governmental organization specialized in this field," said Mohamed Ali.
