Kingdom requests new funds for demining

Cambodia has requested US$24 million from foreign development partners for a new five-year plan to remove landmines, the United Nations Development Programme said in a statement yesterday. Cambodia spent an estimated $24.7 million removing landmines from 2006 to 2010, according to the UNDP. Deputy Prime Minister Sok An will sign an agreement with UNDP Country Director Elena Tischenko today to mark the beginning of the new plan. Cambodia has until 2019 to clear all its known landmines under the Ottawa Treaty banning anti-personnel land mines.
