RA prime minister’s wife’s Mrs. Anna Hakobyan’s message 2019-04-04 RA Prime Minister’s Wife Anna Hakobyan’s Message to Participants of Round-table Discussion on International Mine Awareness Day and Assistance in Mine Action April 4, 2019 Yerevan Respectable ladies and gentleman,Greetings to participants of round-table discussion on International Mine Awareness Day and Assistance in Mine Action.I am thankful to Center for Humanitarian Demining, UN Armenia and LINKS for this vital initiative. I am sure the implementation of this event will allow us to assess the current situation in Armenia within mine action sphere, as well as outline further ways of cooperation within the Republic of Armenia and international organizations.In 2005 the UN General Assembly declared that 4 April of each year shall be observed as the International Day for Mine Awareness as a reminder of the existence of mines and unexploded ordnance, as well as the need to fight against these risks. It also allows us to pay tribute to a number of victims of these deadly ammunitions and to reaffirm our commitment towards safe and landmine free future.This day is of special importance to the countries that unfortunately face the danger of mines, countries that have seen and continue to face human losses and still suffer from negative socio-economic impacts being caused by these ammunitions.Unfortunately Armenia is among these countries. Over 35.000 people live under daily risk of mine contaminated areas. We are obliged to guarantee their right of safe and secure life. In this regard the foundation of 'Center for Humanitarian Demining and Expertise' by RA Government was a vital step. I would like to express my gratitude to those carrying out this important but at the same time dangerous mission often putting their own lives at risk and ensuring the safety of others. I would also like to thank all those organizations and donor countries that suport us in this important activity.In center of mine action there stands the person and his/her safety, so it should be out of politics. The right of human life is indivisible. It is a supreme value and cannot be sacrificed to political calculations. The realization of this should guide us through our initiatives.Greetings once again to participants and organizers of the event and hope you have productive discussions.
