Renowned British film actor Daniel Craig – best known for his portrayal of James Bond or “Agent 007” in the last five instalments from that franchise – called on the international community to rally behind the Cambodian government in order to achieve a landmine- free Cambodia by 2025.
Craig serves as the UN Global Advocate for the Elimination of Mines and Explosive Hazards. He virtually joined the UNDP Cambodia-organised launch of Cambodia’s first Safe Ground campaign in Battambang province on January 22. The project’s goal is to turn minefields into playing fields.
“Safe ground is a fundamental human right. I know there’s a lot of work remaining to achieve the 2025 goal of a mine-free Cambodia and it can’t be achieved without a sustained commitment and increased resources.
