Meeting at the midpoint of a five-day training mission to Cambodia, Japanese and Cambodian naval officials yesterday discussed maritime security in Phnom Penh.
Rear Admiral Hidetoshi Fuchinoue, commander of the Japan Training Squadron, met with Cambodian Royal Navy Commander Tea Vinh at navy headquarters in Phnom Penh.
“I hope that there will be a plan created for technical training next year that will support Cambodia to keep security in its maritime area,” Fuchinoue said at the meeting.
Vinh also announced that the Kingdom’s navy has requested financial support from Japan, Cambodia’s largest aid donor, to build a new headquarters.
