In Brief: Japan to support demining projects

Japan is to provide more than US$800,000 to fund land-mine clearance projects in Battambang province, according to a statement issued Wednesday by the Japanese Embassy. The grant, provided by the Japan Mine Action Service (JMAS), was signed Wednesday by Katsuhiro Shinohara, Japan's ambassador to Cambodia, and by JMAS resident representative Koga Hidematsu. According to the statement, the JMAS grant is to finance four demining teams working in Battambang province under the supervision of the Cambodian Mine Action Centre.
