The Commander in Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces has asked Vietnam to continue training Cambodian troops, particularly special forces used in rapid response and surgical strikes.

General Pol Saroeun welcomed a Vietnamese army delegation led by Vietnam’s Special Forces Commander Major General Do Thanh Binh to RCAF headquarters last week.

The visit aimed to strengthen and expand cooperation between both countries, he said.

During the meeting, Gen Saroeun thanked the Vietnamese for their help, including donations of military materials and training for RCAF officials.

“I ask Vietnam to continue to trade human resources, especially in the field of rapid deployment warfare,” Gen Saroeun said.

Maj Gen Do Thanh Binh also expressed his admiration for the development of Cambodia across all sectors.

The Vietnamese military pays close attention to the requirements of RCAF officials in order to help the troops, he said.

“Special forces of the Vietnamese army will work hard to train RCAF to acquire similar abilities,” he added.
