Cambodia’s Defence Ministry began construction on September 9 on the headquarters and a hall of the Army Officer School of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF), funded by the Vietnamese Defence Ministry.

RCAF Deputy Commander-in-Chief General Eth Sarath thanked the Vietnamese ministry for assisting Cambodia in training officers and building facilities to serve their efforts.

The facilities have been used effectively, contributing to developing the traditional friendship between the two countries’ armies and peoples, he affirmed.

The two-storey building is located on 600 square metres and built with total capital of 240,000 USD. Once completed, the school will serve 450 lecturers and students.

Under a cooperation protocol signed between the two defence ministries, the Vietnamese army will continue to provide around 4 million USD for the RCAF in infrastructure construction in 2015.-VNA
