Aussie aid promised

Australian Senate President Paul Calvert promised more cooperation and more aid to

Cambodia on a recent visit, officials said.

Calvert met Prime Minister Hun Sen, Senate President Chea Sim, National Assembly

President Heng Samrin and King Norodom Sihamoni on February 19.

He said the Australian Senate would provide more assistance and support, especially

human resources training, for Cambodian Senate officials.

"At this moment, our cooperation is better [than before], especially in fighting

terrorism, drug and human trafficking, and intelligence information exchanges, but

we should further promote it," Hun Sen said.
