In candid remarks, Interior Minister Sar Kheng on Saturday revealed that a huge influx of drugs was being smuggled from Laos into Cambodia as a result of loose border controls by Laos authorities.
Sar Kheng was speaking at a ruling party event in Kratie province on Saturday when he spoke about the province’s geographic proximity to Stung Treng province, near the Laos border – known as an infamous international drug trafficking route.
“When I held an annual meeting with them, I raised the number of drugs we confiscated which was carried from Laos,” he said, not providing details of this meeting with the northern neighbor. “They were surprised and appeared to express displeasure.”
