BAKU, Azerbaijan, November 28. United Nations Development Program (UNDP) will continue to work together with Azerbaijan in the field of demining in the coming years, said UNDP Resident Representative in Azerbaijan Alessandra Roccasalvo at the II International Technical Conference "Combating Mine Threat: Innovations and Best Practices", Trend reports.
She pointed out that women in Azerbaijan also have potential to make significant contribution to mine clearance.
"With the support of the European Union, we have established six demining teams. Today we are certifying two of them, which are compiled from women. This is significant for many countries and for us, and we are eager to share this experience with the world," said Roccasalvo.

Roccasalvo also emphasized that it is necessary to develop partnership to spread Azerbaijan's positive experience in the field of demining around the world.
