Maritime strategy on US general’s agenda

Senior US defence official Richard Simcock is scheduled to arrive in Cambodia today for a three-day visit to discuss military ties. 

A series of meetings would focus on maritime security, defence reform, humanitarian assistance and counter-terrorism, the US Embassy said.

“The US Department of Defence looks forward to assisting in building up the professional capacity of the RCAF, while encouraging the RCAF to continue on a path of improved transparency and respect for human rights and the rule of law,” General Simcock said.

General Simcock, the Defence Department’s principal director for Southern and Southeast Asia, will also participate in a Ministry of Defence workshop in Sihan-oukville to discuss the development of Cambodia’s maritime security strategy.
