Vietnam's Ministry of Defence and the Cambodian Royal Army inaugurated a complex comprising residential quarters, a three-storey workplace and a military store in Cambodia's Kandal province on July 20.

The complex built with funding from Vietnam Military Zone 7 is located in the headquarters of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF)'s Brigade 70.

Speaking at the inauguration ceremony, the RCAF's Commander-in-Chief, General Pol Saroeun, expressed his sincere thanks for the whole-hearted assistance given by Military Zone 7 as well as the Vietnamese Ministry of Defence.

Considered the most elite unit of Cambodia's ground forces, Brigade 70's key task is to protect Phnom Penh and other essential targets. They have enjoyed strong cooperation and friendship with Vietnam's Military Zone 7 for many years.

The general said efforts and assistance from Military Zone 7 and the Vietnamese army had made significant contributions to Cambodia's security and defence, and to enhancing the RCAF's fighting capacity in the new era.

In accordance with a cooperation protocol signed by both countries, the Vietnamese army will continue to assist the Royal Cambodian Armed Force with about 4 million USD for basic construction activities in 2015.-VNA
