No RCAF in Iraq, Afghanistan: PM

Prime Minister Hun Sen said Wednesday that he has rejected requests to send Cambodian deminers to Afghanistan and Iraq. “Before, there was a request to send over 1,000 [Cambodian] deminers to Afghanistan…. I decided not to allow it,” he said at the inauguration of National Road 62 in Kampong Thom province. The premier cited dangers inherent in the war zones, including bombs and kidnapping. “I apologise for those who want our forces to go to Afghanistan and Iraq…. I will not send Cambodian children to die there,” Hun Sen said.
