Obama win a win for aid, Vanda tells forum

Although, the government has not yet put out any official statement about the US election results, the first vice president of the National Committee for Disaster Management, Nhim Vanda, and several hundred farmers cheered the announcement yesterday.

At an annual forum, Vanda received a vigorous round of applause when he said Obama’s victory would allow Cambodia to continue to receive aid from the US.

“Today is the day of victory for Obama,” Vanda said.

“So we are hopeful that we’ll have big co-operation with the US.”
