Sri Lanka is looking at the possibility of sending Sri Lanka's de-mining personnel and machinery for the use of other countries in UN demining programmes.

The Economic Ministry said that Minister Basil Rajapaksa, who met with the United Nation's Resident Representative in Sri Lanka Subine Nandy, had already held talks in this regard.

Participating in the progress review meeting of the National Mine Action Programme of Sri Lanka held at the Ministry of Economic Development today, Mr. Nandy praised the de-mining activities in the north.

Mr. Nandy had further said Sri Lanka could make good progress in the mine clearing operations due to the well-coordinated efforts of the Ministry of Economic Development through its mine Action Centre, the ministry said.

    The minister should be working on the sagging economy. Big talk and no action with positive results.
