On June 26 the Japanese government decided to pay U.S.$75 million for its assessed
contribution for the UN's peacekeeping effort in Cambodia. This follows a disbursement
by Japan of U.S.$25 million towards the U.S. Transitional Authority in Cambodia (UNTAC)
in March, after UNTAC was formally launched in Cambodia.
According to a statement issued by the Japanese Embassy in Phnom Penh, the payment
"manifests Japan's active cooperation toward the lasting peace in Cambodia and
the rehabilitation and reconstruction of the country."
