The National Assembly approved a law on the extradition of criminals between Cambodia and Russia.
Pen Panha, chairman of the commission on legislation and justice, said the law would facilitate the extradition of wanted criminals in both countries.
Mr Panha said the extradition treaty would combat transnational crimes such as human trafficking, terrorism, money laundering and corruption.
“Cybercrime is also an issue the world is currently facing,” he said. “It is a crime that can be committed beyond borders.”
The National Assembly has so far approved extradition treaties between Thailand, China, Laos, India, South Korea and Vietnam, Mr Panha added.
Justice Minister Ang Vong Vathana said he supported the extradition treaty with Russia.
