Today, international organizations and civil society have come together on a single platform with the vision of a "mine-free world by 2025."

Ramil Azizov called upon the relevant institutions implementing mine risk awareness events as well as activities aimed at socio-economic integration of the mine victims in Azerbaijan to join the single platform.

The participants joined the discussions on humanitarian demining activities.

There was an exchange of ideas and views on addressing the needs of mine victims, providing them with work environment and opportunities, covering their medical treatments in the country and abroad as well as designing new programs for rehabilitation of the family members of the people who lost their lives in mine incidents.
