The armed forces (RCAF) should "expand and strengthen" their role in fighting
terrorism and involvement in UN peacekeeping missions, says Prime Minister Hun Sen.
In Kampong Speu province on January 10, Hun Sen cited "terrorism, cross-border
crime" and "illegal political and military organizations" as key threats
to national, regional and world security that must be addressed globally. The RCAF
has soldiers in Sudan, and Hun Sen has offered soldiers to Timor L'Este.
