Ambassador Cekuta attends an international conference hosted by ANAMA and NATO NSPA

Ambassador Cekuta joins Deputy Prime Minister, Mr. Abid Sharifov, NATO Deputy Assistant Secretary General for Political Affairs, Mr. James Appathurai, and ANAMA Director Mr. Gazanfar Ahmadov at an international conference hosted by ANAMA and NATO NSPA to discuss the current status of NATO PfP Trust Fund humanitarian demining project in Jeyranchel, Azerbaijan. Since 1999, the U.S. has provided over $30 million to support humanitarian demining efforts here in Azerbaijan. The greatest contribution comes from those ANAMA personnel who risk their lives every day to make others safe. As the result of their hard work over 40 km2 of contaminated land area have been cleared of UXO and remnants at Jeyranchel. [Remarks]
