As in 2019 and in 2020, Belgium is donating 2 million euros to the UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS) for its activities in Iraq and Syria. These funds have been used in recent years for, among others, mine clearance, risk education and victim assistance, thus contributing to alleviating the needs of the civilian population. In Iraq, for example, our contribution helped deploy mixed demining teams, with women and men. Working with these teams allows the deminers to more easily establish contact with local communities and builds trust more quickly.

Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs, European Affairs and Foreign Trade Sophie Wilmès is pleased that Belgium is allocating 1,607,508 euros to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) for the prevention of nuclear proliferation and the strengthening of civil nuclear cooperation.
