China playing greater role in safeguarding Cambodia’s cultural heritage

China has been playing a greater role in safeguarding and developing Cambodia’s cultural heritage, Apsara National Authority’s spokesman Long Kosal said.

Apsara National Authority is the management authority responsible for protecting and preserving the Historic Site of Angkor, a world heritage site, located in northwest Cambodia’s Siem Reap province.

In a recent interview with Xinhua, Kosal said China has helped restore ruined temples in the complex of Angkor since 1997 by renovating the Chau Say Tevoda temple and the Ta Keo temple.
