Sri Lanka has come a long way in clearing the mines from the war affected areas after three decades of war. In fact Sri Lanka can be proud of their achievement in mine clearing in comparison to many other countries in the region that faced similar situations. Having already cleared over 90 percent of the mines in these areas and facilitated the people in those areas to engage in their day to day activities without fear of landmines, Sri Lanka only has around 27 Sq.
