The Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) introduced the Management of Residual Explosive Remnants of War (MORE) project at a workshop held in Hanoi on September 12.

According to Guy Rhodes, Head of Operations at the GICHD, Project MORE is the result of cooperation of 15 countries in Europe and Asia. It supports policy makers in nations contaminated by war to overcome the devastating environmental impacts, particularly in Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

Nghiem Dinh Thien, a representative of the Vietnam National Mine Action Centre (VNMAC) said Vietnam is working on a decree mandating the overcoming of bomb and mine consequences that can fine-tune with other ongoing activities in the field.

Project MORE is to connect experts, technicians, managers and policy makers for mine action cooperation, he stressed.

Vietnam appreciates the great significance of project MORE and is willing to support and cooperate with other countries to carry it out successfully.-VNA
