Cambodia and the United States of America have lauded their military cooperation and vowed to continue fostering their collaboration for their mutual interest.

The appreciation was underlined yesterday by H.E. Lt. Gen. Hun Manet, Deputy Commander-In-Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) and Commander of the Royal Cambodian Army, and H.E. W. Patrick Murphy, U.S. Ambassador to Cambodia, along with Col. Jacky Ly, the new Defence Attaché at the U.S. Embassy.

H.E. Ambassador mentioned about the importance in maintaining the bilateral military cooperation and the successful cooperation in the health sector to promote Cambodia’s public health.

H.E. W. Patrick Murphy also spoke highly of the just policy of the Royal Government on COVID-19 vaccination which has so far reached more than 90 percent of the target population.

In reply, H.E. Lt. Gen. Hun Manet reaffirmed the Royal Cambodian Army’s stance to continue the good cooperation with the American counterpart and looked forward to working closely with the new defence attaché to further boost both countries’ military cooperation.

He took the opportunity to thank the U.S. government and people for providing more than 1 million doses of Johnson& Johnson COVID-19 vaccine through COVAX Facility to Cambodia, which is part of the U.S.’ successive support for the Cambodian people in the fight against the pandemic.
