About 20 military police and doctors are set to depart from the Sihanoukville Port today, along with a large shipment of medical supplies destined for Sudan, as part of a United Nations peacekeeping mission, a military official said yesterday.

Sem Sovanny, director-general of the Institute for Peacekeeping Forces, Mines and Explosive Remnants of War Clearance, said that 50 vehicles containing military uniforms, medical supplies and large containers of water arrived at the port yesterday.  Once the shipment arrives, the government plans to send 200 additional military police and doctors, he added.

Cambodia has sent more than 1,000 troops to Sudan since 2006. RCAF has also participated in missions to Chad, Libya and the Central African Republic.
