A delegation of the U.S. Pacific Command led by Maj. Gen. William H. Nash has been on a visit to Cambodia to boost cooperation with the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF).

Last week, during a meeting with Lt. Gen. Sem Sovanny, Director General of the National Center for Peacekeeping Forces, Mine and ERW (Explosive Remnants of War) Clearance (NPMEC) of Cambodia, Maj. Gen. William H. Nash said the U.S military will provide training on humanitarian mine clearance, UXOs destruction and mine victim assistance to Cambodia’s blue hat soldiers for international peacekeeping missions.

The training is scheduled to begin in August 2012, he stressed.

In reply, Lt. Gen. Sem Sovanny expressed profound thanks and highly valued the cooperation between both countries’ militaries.

Earlier on the same day, the six-member U.S. military delegation visited the Institute for Peacekeeping Forces, Mine and ERW Clearance (IPMEC) in Oudong district of Kampong Speu province.
