Twelve instructors from the Cambodian Special Forces Airborne 911 are spending a
month at the Counter-Insurgency and Jungle Warfare School in India.
The Indian government is footing the bill for the Cambodian soldiers' training and
"We need to strengthen our armed forces but we have a budget shortage,"
said Pang Sovang, Director of International Relations for the Ministry of Defense
(MOD). "Next week we will have Indian specialists for de-mining in Udong."
Sovang said the MOD has sent letters to numerous countries for assistance in military
training and has received hopeful responses from Russia and Vietnam, in particular.
