It makes sense to create an international coalition to mine the territory of Syria and to bring to these works of commercial structures, said the Minister of defense of Russia General of the army Sergei Shoigu.

“I propose to form a coalition of interested countries that would assist in mine clearing of objects in Syria,” — said Shoigu at the opening ceremony of the sixth Moscow conference on international security.

The Minister expressed hope that the UN mine action service in the near future also connect to the mine cap.

“Besides, I consider it expedient to create a Fund to Finance specialized commercial companies to be involved in such work”, — said the Minister of defence of the Russian Federation.
