USACC Donated Two Highly Skilled Mine Detection Dogs to ANAMA

WASHINGTON D.C. – The U.S.-Azerbaijan Chamber of Commerce, Inc. (USACC) and the Marshall Legacy Institute (MLI) visited the Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA) in Horadiz in the Fuzuli district of Azerbaijan. Working with the MLI, the USACC donated two highly trained dogs to ANAMA. During the meeting on August 25, the activities of the ten mining dogs recently given to ANAMA were discussed as well as the direction of future cooperation. The USACC Executive Director Natig Bakhishov buckled an engraved collar on one of the dogs named "Huner" at ANAMA's base in Horadiz.

The USACC is proud to be a part of this project where the dogs will sniff out explosives in the mines and save human lives. Two of the ten mining dogs brought to the Republic of Azerbaijan were funded by PASHA Bank, Kapital Bank Azerbaijan, and Anglo Asian Mining PLC through the USACC. Silk Way West Airlines, a USACC member organization, transported the dogs safely and free of charge.
