AKP Phnom Penh, October 25, 2011 –A scanning system to research nuclear or radioactive materials worth over US$6 million funded by the U.S. government was put into use in an inauguration ceremony held on Oct. 22 at the Sea Port of Preah Sihanouk province.

The ceremony was presided over by H.E. Keat Chhon, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Economy and Finance with the presence of H.E. Om Yentieng, Senior Minister and Vice President of the National Committee of Anti-terrorism, Mr. Jeff Daigle, U.S. Chargé d’Affaires and other Cambodian government officials.

The installation of the scanning system aims to prevent the smuggling of nuclear or radioactive materials in the world. The scanner also plays a crucial role in combating terrorism, thus contributing to preserving the social security and order in the country and the world.

“With the specialized equipment provided by the U.S. National Nuclear Security Administration, Cambodia now has the capacity to scan all import and export containers passing through the Sea Port of Sihanoukville for the presence of potentially dangerous nuclear and other radioactive materials,” Mr. Jeff Daigle said.

The sea port and customs officials are currently being trained on the use of the scanner in response to the necessary case happening, he said.

H.E. Keat Chhon expressed thanks to the U.S. government for providing the assistance to Cambodia, saying the cooperation between Cambodia and the U.S. has been promoted.
