Cambodia on Friday said it would continue to send military personnel on United Nations peacekeeping missions, but it will seek to better arm the troops for entering areas of operation.
“Our leader has pledged our commitment to contribute more troops to join peacekeeping operations,” Defense Minister Tea Banh told VOA Khmer in an exclusive interview in New York. “Despite internal difficulties, we will make the contribution as much as we can.”
Military officials met at the Peacekeeping Ministerial Conference at the UN Headquarters in New York on Friday to discuss the capacity of peacekeeping forces around the world.
