Last week, Cambodia’s Prime Minister Hun Sen paid a visit to the Czech Republic as part of a wider Europe tour. Though the visit itself had a wide-ranging focus, it also put the spotlight on the defense aspect of the bilateral relationship amid wider domestic and regional developments.
Cambodia and the Czech Republic have a defense relationship as part of their wider bilateral ties, first established back in 1956. Defense ties have included aspects such as exchanges, visits, as well as some defense equipment, with a case in point being the five Aero Vodochody L-39 Albatros basic trainer/light attack jet aircraft delivered beginning in the mid-1990s to the the Royal Cambodian Air Force. In recent years, both sides have discussed ways to advance security collaboration still further, with areas including demining and airspace protection.
