Bangladesh says it will destroy about 200-thousand landmines as part of an agreement with the United Nations.

Army officials say Canada will pay for the project, which will be complete by the middle of next year.

They also say Bangladesh will maintain about 15-thousand landmines in order to train its soldiers in handling them.

The South Asian country is a member of the 1997 international Mine Ban Treaty.
