Military attaché office to be set up in Malaysia

The Cambodian government last week approved the establishment in Kuala Lumpur of Cambodia’s 10th defence attaché office, which will aim to broaden military cooperation between Cambodia and Malaysia.

According to a senior military official under Defence Minister Tea Banh, on August 15th, Prime Minister Hun Sen signed a sub-decree to appoint a defence attaché officer and an assistant, both to be selected from the Ministry of Defence, to the new office.

The exact date for their departure will be set after the necessary documents have been processed, the official said.

Cambodia currently has nine defence attaché offices, in Vietnam, Laos, Thailand, Myanmar, China, Indonesia, Australia, the United States and Russia.
