French Government gives grant worth nearly half a million euros to remove remnants of war in Libya

On Friday, the French government awarded the United Nations Voluntary Trust Fund € 430,000 to support mine clearance and war remnants in Misrata.

The United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL) released a statement on their official page saying that the amount granted would enable the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) to carry out work to remove remnants of war and save lives in Misrata.

According to the mission, France’s contribution helped the Libyan Demining Center destroy approximately 200 tons of explosive remnants of war located near residential areas in Misrata.

The Director of the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) Agnes Marcaillou said that she would continue to provide technical support and advice to the Libyan authorities engaged in demining and the disposal of explosive remnants of war in Misrata, in cooperation with the Government of France.

The United Nations Mine Action Service is a coordinating agency within the United Nations system to ensure effectiveness, to address the problems of landmines and explosive remnants of war around the world.
