state radio has started its first Khmer-language broadcasts into
Cambodia with the launch of a new station in the capital Thursday.
Chinese International Radio, which broadcasts in 43 languages around
the world, has cooperated with National Radio of Cambodia to establish
the new station on the 50th anniversary of diplomatic relations between
the two countries. Cambodia-China Friendship Radio Phnom Penh, as the
new station has been dubbed, will broadcast 18 hours a day in Khmer,
Chinese and English.
