"From 21 to 26 October 2013, UNLIREC, in close collaboration with the Ministry of Defense of Suriname, supported the destruction of close to 700 surplus and obsolete weapons and 200 kilos of small arms ammunition. All small arms were destroyed using a set of hydraulic shears provided by UNLIREC to the Ministry of Defense of Suriname, while the ammunition was burned using the UNLIREC-patented Small Arms Ammunition Burning Tank (SAABT). All weapons and ammunition destroyed were documented in accordance with UNLIREC's standard operating procedures based on UN International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS) and UN International Ammunition Technical Guidelines (IATGs).
