Cambodia: Chinese army to assist in demining during drill

The Chinese army will help Cambodia in clearing landmines and other UXOs in an upcoming military drill.

Prime Minister Hun Sen said making Cambodia, a country once torn by civil war, to be landmine-free has always been a goal of the government to protect people’s lives and provide them with more arable lands, and his government wants to achieve that goal by 2025 by any means.
