The Armenian Center for Humanitarian Demining & Expertise (CHDE) on
Thursday formally handed to Armenia's Syunik Regional Hall the demined
and inspected areas in the region's Shurnukh village.

As a result of the studies, which CHDE and the Swiss Foundation for
Mine Action (FSD) had conducted, two areas in the village were deemed
confirmed hazardous areas (CHAs), and therefore they were not used by
the villagers.

But with funding by the Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement of the
Bureau of Political-Affairs (PM/WRA) of the U.S. Department of State,
the HALO Trust organization started in April 2014, and together with
specialists from the Armenia MOD Peacekeeping Bomb Disposal Engineer
Battalion, and on Tuesday successfully completed the demining of these
two CHAs.
