Chinese sailors to visit, give equipment

A Chinese warship will make a port call at Sihanoukville on November 5 and an assortment of equipment, including a number of ambulances, will be donated to the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF), officials say.

"China is going to give us 10 minibuses and 31 ambulances next month because they see RCAF currently has no capacity to transport sick soldiers," Pang Savan, director of the International Relations Department at the Ministry of Defence.

"Their visit to Cambodia is to strengthen their relationship with the Cambodian navy and friendship between both countries," Pang Savan said.
