James Bond actor Daniel Craig visited Cyprus to tour a live minefield. The actor who has caused upset with film fans by saying no to another James Bond film “I’d rather break this glass and slash my wrists. We’re done. All I want to do is move on”, wanted to see the minefield for himself.
Daniel Craig, who was appointed the UN’s first Global Advocate for the Elimination of Mines and Explosive Hazards in April, wanted to see the great work that was being done in Cyprus. He walked along the former conflict zone with officials which have divided the Greek Cypriot south and the Turkish Cypriot north since 1974.
He said: “Witnessing the potential impact that mines can have on people and communities, years after the end of conflict, brings home the humanitarian importance of the UN’s de-mining efforts in Cyprus,”
27,000 undetected explosives have been removed from the area, which shows how important the work is. The actor who would like to see mines removed from all over the world thanked everyone involved for all the great work they were doing.
The actor also met with the head of a Cambodian peacekeeping team whose role it is to help the UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus (UNFICYP).
