Top U.S. Defense Official Appreciates Cooperation Ties Between Cambodia and China

AKP Phnom Penh, October 28, 2011 –U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for South and Southeast Asia, Robert Scher (pictured) acknowledged and admired the cooperation ties between Cambodia and China.

His recognition and admiration were made in a press conference held here on Oct. 27 to conclude his two-day visit to Cambodia.

He said his visit is to boost the military-to-military relation between the two countries, support Cambodia as a chairmanship of ASEAN Summit in the near future and understand Cambodia being required to be a chairman of ASEAN.

It is better Cambodia has a cooperation relation with China and the U.S. still continues providing assistance to the country such as a recent military exercise, he said in response to questions raised by reporters in the press conference of China’s influence in the region and the deportation of Uygurs to China.

In his stay, he said he held meetings with Cambodian defense officials, in which the discussions focused on opportunities for future cooperation in the areas of peacekeeping, humanitarian assistance, and defense reform – topics of particular importance in light of Cambodia’s chairmanship of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) in 2012.

The Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Scher visited the National Center for Peacekeeping Forces, Mines and Explosive Remnants of War Clearance.
