IEDs present complex issues that deserve sustained national and international attention.  U.S. counter-IED and humanitarian IED disposal policies are promoting robust cooperation with state, local, tribal, and territorial governments, along with our allies and partner nations, and private sector and non-governmental partners, to advance awareness of IED threats and enhance our collective counter-IED and humanitarian IED disposal capabilities. Alongside allies and the international community, the United States will continue to develop strategies to address the IED threat and achieve peace and security.
