July 21, Colombo: The Government of Japan has extended a grant assistance of US$ 611,000 to Sri Lanka for de-mining activities in Northern Sri Lanka.

The grant assistance from Japan aims to accelerate the Sri Lankan government's program to provide livelihood assistance to the resettled people in the North.

The agreement for the grant assistance was signed yesterday at the Japanese Embassy in Colombo.

The mine clearance project for livelihood development in the Northern Province of Sri Lanka is being implemented with the assistance of Japan.

Over US $ 30 million has been offered under the program to de-mining since 2003. Over the past three years, Japanese assistance has helped to clear over 100,000 landmines in the North and East.
