Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) Commander-in-Chief General Vong Pisen stated that the RCAF has actively contributed to the implementation of all government regulations to prevent and suppress illegal activities, contributing to the rescue of people from disasters and cooperating to protect, prevent and participate in the campaign against Covid-19.

Pisen made the remarks in his congratulatory message to all of the RCAF’s officials and soldiers on the occasion of the traditional Khmer New Year.

"Last year, all RCAF officials and soldiers worked hard to overcome all difficulties and sacrificed to maintain peace and social stability while protecting the territorial integrity and sovereignty of the beloved motherland of us all," he said.

He said they have actively participated in the implementation of the policies of the government, Ministry of National Defence and of their commander-in-chief to build a strong, organised and competent RCAF that can fulfil their duties in national defence.

"The RCAF has actively contributed to the implementation of all government regulations to prevent and suppress illegal activities such as forestry and fisheries crimes, sex trafficking and drugs.

“Additionally, we have helped veterans’ families who have lost their ability to work and strengthened the alliances between the army units and ministries and civil society in order to build and strengthen the national defence,” he noted.

Pisen concluded his address by saying that the great achievements of the past were due to the tireless efforts and noble sacrifices of the RCAF officials and soldiers.
