The UN’s migration agency has vowed to continue working with the government to provide assistance to Cambodian people working abroad.

The announcement came yesterday following a meeting between Foreign Affairs Minister Prak Sokhonn and Nenette Motus, regional director at the International Organisation for Migration.

Ministry spokesman Chum Sounry said Ms Motus had reaffirmed the IOM’s commitment to working with the government on migrant worker issues.

He said Mr Sokhonn also praised IOM for the important role it plays in rescuing and providing assistance to Cambodian victims of human trafficking and violence abroad.    

“The Foreign Minister thanked IOM for working closely with government, especially for providing air tickets to Cambodian workers who are being repatriated,” Mr Sounry said.
