WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The United States will provide Colombia with $10 million to help its efforts to clear landmines in the South American country, the Pentagon said on Monday.
U.S. Defense Secretary Ash Carter informed Colombian Defense Minister Luis Carlos Villegas of the U.S. commitment in a phone call on Monday, the Pentagon said in a statement.
Decades of fighting between Colombia's armed forces and rebel groups has left the country contaminated by landmines and unexploded munitions, with 31 of its 32 departments affected.
