The United States has agreed to the establishment of a military attache at the Cambodian embassy in Washington, according to government officials. The agreement was made on January 29 at the embassy, said Koy Kuong, spokesman for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation. He said the establishment of a military attache would improve the US and Cambodia's military relationship and help coordinate training programs. "This shows a better relationship and confidence in one another," said Koy Kuong. According to officials at the US embassy in Phnom Penh, US military attaches had not existed in Cambodia since the beginning of the Khmer Rouge regime, but began again in 1993.
