007 actor calls for anti-mine funds

UNITED NATIONS - British actor Daniel Craig is calling for more funding for the United Nations agency that defuses mines and other unexploded ordnance, saying the work it does increases the chances of survival for people and aid workers in conflict zones around the world.

Craig, who has played agent 007 in four James Bond movies including “Spectre” and “Casino Royale,” was appointed Global Advocate for the Elimination of Mines and Explosive Hazards last year by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon.

Craig said the tremendous turmoil around the world created by fighting in countries such as Syria, Iraq, Libya and Somalia, underscores the need for nations and individuals to continue funding the work of the United Nations Mine Action Service.
