Top US military chief in talks

Lieutenant General David Bramlett, deputy commandr of US forces in the Pacific, met

Cambodian officials earlier this week for talks on military aid.

The deputy commander-in-chief of US Pacific Command arrived in Phnom Penh to meet

with Cambodia's defence chiefs, including co-Defence Ministers Tea Banh and Tea Chamrath

and armed forces chief of staff General Ke Kim Yan.

He was also scheduled to meet second Prime Minister Hun Sen but details of those

talks were not known, according to US embassy officials.

The general's three-day visit would have given him the opportunity to review Washington's

humanitarian military assistance to the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, which was worth

$12m last year.

The US has said it will not consider supplying arms and ammunition to Cambodia until

it is satisfied with the scope and durability of army reforms now underway.
