The Ministry of National Defence has provided 154,000 USD for the Sapper Command of Royal Cambodian Armed Forces to build infrastructure for the Decho sapper school.

This is one of 20 projects to which the ministry has aided the Cambodian army, and it is scheduled to be completed by the year’s end.

Vietnamese Defence Attaché to Cambodia Nguyen Anh Dung, on behalf of the ministry, granted the money to the Cambodian side.

Offering thanks for the assistance given by the Vietnamese People’s Army, Deputy Commander Khoun Seam recalled the traditional solidarity between the two countries’ armies and people during both war and peace time.

He also expressed his deep gratitude to Vietnamese soldiers and people for helping his country escape from the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime in 1979.-VNA
