MINSK, 16 December (BelTA) – The working group for security of the contact group on Ukraine managed to agree on 12 priority demining zones, OSCE special representative in the trilateral contact group on Ukraine Martin Sajdik told reporters on 15 December, BelTA has learned.

“We would like to draw special attention to the achievements of the working group for security which, particularly, discussed demining issues, the implementation of the agreement on the withdrawal of heavy armor, tanks and artillery with a caliber of less than 100mm, mortars with a caliber of less than 120mm. Besides, the group discussed the full observation of the ceasefire agreement. A leap forward has been made today in the humanitarian demining because the working group managed to agree on 12 priority demining zones,” Martin Sajdik said.

He reminded that the working group planned to solve this issue by 22 December; however, it managed to arrive at a decision on 15 December “It is very important as people are dying because of mines on the line of contact,” the OSCE special representative added.

Martin Sajdik noted that the demining process will be supervised by the special monitoring commission of the OSCE.
