Cambodia’s help sought in demining Philippine territory

The Bangsamoro Autonomous Region remains littered with landmines and unexploded ordnance.

The Cambodian Mine Authority has received a request from the Philippines to help it demine the Bangsamoro Autonomous Region, which remains littered with landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO).

This was revealed by the Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) in a statement saying the issue came up during a meeting between its vice president Ly Thuch and Philippine ambassador Amelita Aquino, who led a mine action delegation to Cambodia last week.

“Aquino requested the Cambodian government, through CMAA, to cooperate in helping their demining efforts, especially in the Bangsamoro region, so recently affected by war,” the CMAA said.
