 EU says civilian casualties of landmines must be prevented

Civilian casualties of landmines must be prevented, the EU’s Lead Spokesperson for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy, Peter Stano, tweeted.

The tweet came after the death of Azerbaijani civilians as a result of a mine explosion in the country’s liberated Kalbajar district, AzVision.az reports.

“All information necessary for demining must be exchanged,” the EU official said, calling on Armenia and Azerbaijan to resolve pending humanitarian issues.

On the morning of June 4, 2021, a vehicle carrying members of the film crew hit an anti-tank mine on the road in Susuzlug village of Kalbajar region. As a result of the explosion, two members of the film crew, cameraman of Azerbaijan Television Siraj Abishov and correspondent of the Azerbaijan State News Agency Maharram Ibrahimov, as well as representative of the district executive power Arif Aliyev were killed and four people were injured.
