Rome, June 27 - Italy donated two million euros in
2012 to the Fund for Humanitarian Demining aimed at financing
clearance projects in Libya, Somalia, Bosnia and Afghanistan,
and plans to give 1.2 million euros to the cause in 2013,
according to Deputy Foreign Minister Lapo Pistelli on Friday.
Italy has "played its part in backing countries that are
still paying the consequences for the use of mines," he said.
Pistelli, who was overseeing a meeting of the National
Committee for Humanitarian Action, cited Italy's ongoing
recession as the reason behind the lower contribution in 2013.
The funds donated this year are meant to assist in
mine-clearance projects in Somalia, Sudan and South Sudan,
Pistelli said.
