NATO-sponsored project to help secure dangerous munitions in Tajikistan
31 January 2012
Fifteen years after the end of a civil war, Tajikistan is left with thousands of tonnes of munitions insecurely stored in makeshift storage sites across the country. Aside from the many known munitions caches, several more lie undiscovered, posing a major security threat to the Tajik people.
A Partnership Trust Fund project, officially launched on 31 January, will soon help Tajikistan to counter this threat.
