Baku, December 4, AZERTAC
“The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) is ready to lend assistance to Azerbaijan in addressing mine problem,” said head of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) Delegation in Azerbaijan Dragana Kojic as she addressed the round-table discussions on the “Protection of the disabled persons and mine victims in Azerbaijan”.
Dragana Kojic stressed the importance of providing multifaceted assistance to the mine victims and their families. “Following 2020, the vast majority of landmine victims in Azerbaijan are men. Considering the fact that they are main breadwinners in their families, it is crucial to meet any needs of their family members. We are ready to provide support to Azerbaijan's Ombudsman Office. Our goal is to assess the best practices, discuss and eliminate the gaps, and discuss the future activity,” Kojic added.
