Agent Orange Vietnam: Airport to be cleared of dioxin by 2015

Dioxin contamination at Da Nang Airport would be remediated by 2015, co-chair of the Joint Advisory Committee on Agent Orange Le Ke Son said at yesterday's press conference as the committee concluded its sixth meeting.

Teichman said the committee also discussed environmental efforts to remediate the Bien Hoa Airport in Dong Nai Province and Phu Cat Airport in Binh Dinh Province.

However, Dr. Son said the decontamination work at Phu Cat Airport would likely be done next year while comprehensive technical assessment of the decontamination work at Bien Hoa Airport had not been completed.

Son noted that the US government had continued increasing its financial commitments to deal with dioxin/AO consequences
