North Korean officials were interested in technical clearance of aerial bomb and explosive remnants of wars by Cambodian deminers.

Heng Ratana, CMAC’s director general, said on his Facebook that North Korean delegation was interested in aerial bomb clearance technique.

“The delegation is interested in landmines and ERW clearance and in particular, aerial bomb clearance techniques,” Mr Ratana said.

The International Red Cross on Wednesday has sponsored and led a North Korean delegation to visit CMAC headquarters for research and studying technical mine clearances in Cambodia.

The report issued by the Cambodian Mine Action Authority said that ten people were killed and another 48 people were injured from January until December, the same number of casualties in 2017.

“The figure of the deaths and injuries are the same as last year,” the report said, noting that 2018 there were 16 children casualties, 36 men and six women. In 2017, there were 18 children casualties, 35 men and 5 women.
