China to provide $84M grant to strengthen Kingdom’s military

China will grant the Kingdom 600 million yuan ($84 million) as it continues to support the strengthening of the Cambodian military, Minister of National Defence Tea Banh said on Wednesday.

The aid is to upgrade equipment and improve training, in what was described as comprehensive Chinese assistance in response to Cambodian military deficiencies.

Banh led a delegation of high-ranking Cambodian military officials to the 7th Military World Games sporting event in Wuhan, in China’s Hubei province. During the five-day visit that ended on Tuesday, he discussed regional security issues with China’s Minister of National Defence Wei Fenghe.
