Cambodia to store or destroy US-made weapons

Cambodia is reviewing whether it’s military has any US-made weapons or equipment and will either store or destroy them.

The move follows the United States decision to impose an arms embargo on the country on Dec 9, citing “deepening Chinese military influence in Cambodia [that] undermines and threatens regional security” as well as alleged “corruption and human rights abuses”.

The Phnom Penh Post reports that Prime Minister Hun Sen had responded to the embargo by directing the Cambodian military to put all US-made arms and military hardware into storage in warehouses or just destroy them outright.
