News / EU and Serbia cooperate on humanitarian demining
Ten instructors for training the trainers for demining received internationally recognised certificates on 19 November at the premises of the Demining Center in Grocka Serbia . The certificates were handed to them by the Ambassador of the European Union to Serbia, Emanuele Giaufret, and Predrag Bandić, general and acting Assistant Minister for Defense Policy.
Ambassador Giaufret stated that Serbia is a major and reliable contributor to the EU’s Common Security and Defence Policy (CSDP) missions. “Thanks to this EU funded project, ten students from the Serbian armed forces and the Mine Action Centre will be awarded for upgrading their capacities in humanitarian demining. This project strengthens our effective cooperation in the CSDP and Serbia’s alignment with international standards in the demining field. Serbia is the EU’s valuable partner in the area of security and defence policies,” said the Ambassador.
The training was provided as part of the EU funded project “Strengthening the capacity of the Republic of Serbia in the field of demining and destruction of unexploded ordnance” which is being implemented within the cooperation of the Demining Center with the Ministry of Defense.
The €600,000 project contributes to strengthening the capacity of the Republic of Serbia in the field of humanitarian demining. With this project, the Republic of Serbia and the European Union continue to intensify cooperation in the field of Common Security and Defense Policy (CSDP).
