The Kingdom of Cambodia and the United Nations (UN) have agreed to boost their partnership and cooperation on mine clearance.
The agreement was made in a meeting here on Feb. 2 between Cambodian Senior Minister and First Vice President of the Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) and H.E. Joseph Scheuer, UN Resident Coordinator in Cambodia.
H.E. Ly Thuch expressed his gratitude to the UN for its support for Cambodia’s mine action efforts, contributing to saving millions of lives from landmines and explosive remnants of war.
H.E. Senior Minister also laid stress on the Samdech Techo Project for Mine Action (STP-MA) and Cambodia Mine-Free 2025 Foundation to achieve the Kingdom’s set goal in 2025.
Cambodia considers UN as a key partner in its peace-seeking and development process as well as for mine action, he underlined, inviting the UN resident coordinator to conduct a field visit to see mine clearance activities at his appropriate time.
