THREE Japanese Maritime Self-Defence Force ships are scheduled to arrive at Sihanoukville Autonomous Port this morning, marking the beginning of a five-day visit that will allow 110 cadet school graduates to study the Kingdom and its military system, according to a press release issued last week by the Japanese embassy.

Captain Miwa Kazumasa, who is heading the visit, plans to pay courtesy calls on leaders at the Ministry of National Defence, the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces and the Cambodian navy.

The visit is part of an effort to strengthen ties between Japan and Mekong region countries.
