Georgia to address international organizations regarding mine clearance

Georgia will ask international organizations and other countries for assistance with mine clearance operations. Georgia will draw up its 5th Statement of Case concerning “the explosive remains of the war,” as discussed at the Parliamentary Defence and Security Committee.
The country is committed to locating and marking undetonated explosives and clearing and destroying all mines on Georgian territory. A concrete plan for doing this, and its financial implications, have been discussed by the Defence and Security Committee. Implementing these commitments will cost money, and although the required expense is certainly within the limits of the present budget, other countries will also be approached for assistance.
