Red defense

China will almost triple its military aid to Cambodia next year, giving $2.4 million

dollars, Reuters reported September 25. The pledge came during a visit to Phnom Penh

by the Chinese army's chief of staff, Fu Quanyou. The cash will be used to fund training,

with some Cambodian officers traveling to China for instruction. A Cambodian military

spokesman welcomed the move, saying military cooperation between the two countries

was getting "stronger and stronger".
