The Chinese Embassy in Phnom Penh on Thursday lauded law enforcement cooperation efforts between the two countries that have seen around 1,000 Chinese nationals, accused of varying crimes, deported in the last 12 months.

To mark the occasion, the Chinese Embassy posted on Facebook that at least 1,000 Chinese nationals were deported in the last year. Additionally, a Cambodian Ministry of Interior press release from August reported that at least 2,700 Chinese had been deported since 2014.

“After the China-Cambodia Law Enforcement Cooperation Office was established, the enforcement agencies of the two countries have worked closely with each other to crack down on any crimes that affect the lives, property and safety of both citizens,” the Facebook post read.
