Cambodian sappers became world-renowned experts after the Thirty Years’ War, leaving many mines behind.

Cambodia will send two demining teams to Ukraine to help train Ukrainian demining specialists, WP reports citing the Cambodian Foreign Ministry.

It was noted that Prime Minister Hun Sen and President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky had agreed to this a day earlier by phone.

The Washington Post added that Cambodia, along with Japan, will send the first team of specialists in early December, and the second in the first quarter of next year, according to the director of the Cambodian Demining Center, Heng Ratan.

The publication recalls that in Cambodia, after thirty years of war, which ended in 1998, there was a huge amount of mines and unexploded ordnance, and over the years, Cambodian sappers were recognized in the world as specialist in the removal of traces of war. . Several thousand of them subsequently worked for the UN in Africa and the Middle East.

Hun Sen, in a conversation with Zelensky, condemned Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, saying that “Cambodia is always against one country attacking another.”

By the way, in early October, Cambodia, unlike its neighbors and former partners in the so-called. The “socialist camp”, voted for the UN General Assembly resolution condemning Russia’s “referendum” on the occupied territories. Vietnam, Laos and China abstained.

Recall that the United States allocated $47.6 million for the training of sappers in Ukraine. Tetra Tech will immediately begin training Ukrainians to find and defuse munitions.
