“The Royal Government of Cambodia, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, has been coordinating with the Government of Israel to organise the repatriation of 128 Cambodian students who graduated from Israel and found it difficult to travel during the COVID-19 crisis,” the Ministry of Foreign Affairs said in a statement today.

It said with “good” cooperation between the governments of the two countries, Israel will send the Cambodian students to Phnom Penh International Airport between Monday and November 30 on a special flight that flies directly from Israel to Cambodia.

The special flight will then transport 250 other Cambodian students who have received scholarships to study in Israel.
