Asked about the position of the United Nations Mine Action Committee on mining issues in Egypt, specifically where landmines were planted during the Second World War and were "continuing to cripple the north-west coastal areas", Mr. Brady, of the United Nations Mine Action Service, said that in 2007 the Egyptian Government had created a north-west coast programme of demining and development, with voluntary funds provided to start it up along with discretionary funds from the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP). UNDP had deployed an adviser. The clearance was being conducted exclusively by the military, as per Egyptian law, and UNDP had done some victim assistance work.

Asked if Egyptian authorities were responsible for mine clearance, Mr. Brady said Egypt had said the nations responsible for laying mines should clear them. In fact, most of the nations that could be implicated in that contamination were all donors in the past few years to the Egyptian programme. "At the end of the day", he added, "it is the responsibility of the jurisdiction and the authority there to address the issue of contamination in the country."
