The National Authority for Preah Vihear (NAPV) will cooperate with the Cambodian Mine Action Centre (CMAC) to begin a joint operation to clear mines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) in two areas located in the Koh Ker temple complex in Preah Vihear province.
The areas have been identified as irrigation systems from ancient times that connected to temples in Laos.
On September 2, NAPV deputy director-general in charge of Koh Ker temple complex Pheng Samoeun led a working group of CMAC and specialist officials to inspect the sites and request clearance of mines and UXO there.
“Once we finish our work then tourists can visit. The area has an ancient dam with an irrigation system that connects to Ta Men temple, Angkor Road, Koh Ker temple and to Wat Phu in Laos,” he said.
