“After consultation with Japanese partners, Mine Action Center would send its first team to Ukraine in early December, and a second team may be sent in the first quarter of next year,” noted the director general of the Cambodian Mine Action Center Heng Ratana.

The Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy welcomed such a proposal, and he agreed with the Prime Minister of Cambodia Hun Sen to appoint ambassadors to each other’s countries.

Cambodia also spoke out against Russian aggression in Ukraine. It joined the UN resolution condemning the full-scale invasion of the Russian Federation.

Uaposition memo: Cambodian sappers are considered to be among the most experienced in the world. In 1998, the war that had lasted for almost thirty years ended in Cambodia. After hostilities, a huge territory of the state remained mined, which created danger for the civilian population, especially in rural areas. Since then, Cambodian experts have destroyed a lot of ammunition and mines. They were sent under the auspices of the UN to the countries of Africa and the Middle East to clear the territories.
