Thus, approximately 1.3 million acre of land remain highly dangerous zones that have to be left unused even for decades after military conflicts. 163 countries have militated against landmines during the Ottawa Treaty in 1999. The goal is to clear the last landmine by the year of 2025. Do you think, this seems to be impossible?
