According to information on de-mining operations carried out by the Defense Ministry, from September 1 to September 23, 2021, the engineering troops cleared territories with a total area of ​​1,119 hectares in Aghdam, Jabrayil, Fuzuli, Khojavand, and Gubadly districts from mines and unexploded munitions, as well as detected 91 unexploded munitions.

In Jabrayil, Zangilan, and Fuzuli districts, clearing of sown areas for perennial crops from mines and unexploded munitions has been completed. In the Gubadly district, the clean-up of an area of ​​91 hectares is being completed. The clearance of territory with an area of ​​1,628.626 hectares from mines and unexploded munitions was completed. An area of ​​427 hectares is to be cleared. An area of ​​12,014 hectares has been cleared from mines and unexploded munitions.

Operations to clear mines and unexploded munitions from the Khachynarkh-1 and Khachynarkh-2 canals, as well as sub-artesian wells in the Aghdam district, began on September 27.

It was also emphasized that proposals are being prepared for work to reduce the mine threat that may arise when citizens return to the territories cleared of mines. So, it was reported that at the first stage, the citizens will be returned to Zangilan district, and as the infrastructure projects are completed, to other districts.

According to the meeting participants, despite the ongoing work to inform citizens about the mine threat, it may not be enough to ensure their safety. To exchange views on the measures to be taken and to develop a common communication concept, the participants discussed the possibility of a trip of representatives of the relevant structures to Zangilan.

The Coordination Headquarters, created upon the order of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev dated November 24, 2020, is led by Head of the Presidential Administration Samir Nuriyev.
