Luanda - The National De-mining Institute (INAD) has technical and human resources to implement three types of land- mine clearance in Angola, as part of humanitarian process performed by the institution.

The INAD managing director, Leonardo Severino Sapalo announced this Monday in Luanda.

The procedures included the manual, mechanical and dogs de-mining.

The last method will be implemented in the coming days, following the successful training of INAD staff by trainers from Bosnia, in some country's provinces, especially Luanda and Bengo.

Speaking to Angop, Leonardo Severino Sapalo explained that in the accomplishment of humanitarian de-mining tasks to secure the national reconstruction programme and the free movement of people and goods, the institute is increasingly developing its tools, with a view to improve the application types and methods.

Therefore, INAD started with manual land mine clearance and followed by a phase funded by government that led to mechanical de-mining with adequate equipment.
