Cambodia and Vietnam Hold Joint Disaster Management Drill in Svay Rieng

Military personnel from the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces and Vietnam will hold a five-day joint disaster relief drill starting Saturday, along the border in Svay Rieng province.

Personnel from Vietnam’s People Army will conduct the joint exercise in Cambodia, which includes RCAF’s notorious Brigade 911, which has routinely been deployed to crackdown on public demonstrations. The drill will involve a total of around 1,400 people, including 250 Vietnamese troops.

“This drill aims to strengthen and expand the traditional relations and cooperation that Cambodia enjoys [with Vietnam],” said Major General Thong Solimo, spokesperson for RCAF.
