Australia is one of the longest-standing supporters of mine clearance action in Cambodia, contributing essentially to Cambodian government’s goal to reach mine-free status by 2025.
The appreciation was voiced by H.E. Ly Thuch, Senior Minister and First Vice President of the Cambodian Min Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) in a farewell meeting here early this week with H.E. Pablo Kang, Outgoing Ambassador of Australia to Cambodia.
Cambodia considers Australia as a key partner especially for mine action in Cambodia, he continued.
He encouraged the Australian government to continue supporting mine clearance operations in Cambodia toward its set goal.
H.E. Ly Thuch deeply thanked the Government of Australia for its support for Cambodia’s mine action since 1994, saving millions of lives from landmines and explosive remnants of war.
