Cambodian troops could go to Iraq

Prime Minister Hun Sen announced on 4 January in a speech delivered in Kampong Cham

province that Cambodia could send non-combat troops to Afghanistan and Iraq. Hun

Sen said Cambodia "would not send troops to fight" but could provide troops

to help with de-mining, construction and hospital services. He also used the occasion

to lash out at UN-rights envoy, Yash Ghai. "Cambodia will send soldiers to Kenya

to show Yash Ghai that Cambodia is capable of solving other countries' problems,"

said Hun Sen.
