Norway Continues to Support Mine Clearance Activities in Cambodia

The Government of Norway through Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) confirmed its commitment to continue supporting Cambodia’s mine clearance efforts by providing US$5 million for the next four years.

The assistance was unveiled here on June 5 by Mr. Zlatko Vezillic, Programme Manager for NPA’s Cambodia’s Mine Action and Disarmament programme while paying a farewell visit to Cambodian Senior Minister and First Vice President of Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) H.E. Ly Thuch.

On behalf of the Royal Government and people of Cambodia, H.E. Ly Thuch expressed his profound thanks to Norway for its active contribution to mine clearance activities in the Kingdom so as to achieve the status of landmine-free Cambodia by 2025.

H.E. Ly Thuch also spoke highly of the success of Mr. Zlatko Vezillic’s four-year mission in the Kingdom. After Cambodia, he will assume the new role as NPA’s Operations Manager in Zimbabwe.
