Foreign Minister Hor Namhong will be in Paris on July 14 to commemorate the centenary of the First World War, the Foreign Ministry announced on Friday. Three military officers will hold Cambodian flags during a parade, which four youths will also join.

Namhong was invited by French President François Hollande. France has invited more than 70 countries that took part in the war to attend the ceremony on Bastille Day. More than 1,000 Cambodians volunteered to fight in France during the First World War.
