Cambodia: No foreign military base allowed

Cambodia’s Defence Minister Tea Banh reassured Wednesday that no foreign military base would be allowed in the country as it goes against its Constitution.

At a ground-breaking ceremony for the modernisation of facilities at the Ream Naval Base with Chinese aid, Tea Banh, also deputy prime minister, suggested some countries have spread misinformation about cooperation between Cambodia and China.

“Cambodia, however, can receive all sorts of military assistance from any country, including China, to further enhance its self-defense capabilities,” Tea Banh said.
