Kishida welcomes Cambodia’s help for land mine clearance in Ukraine

Prime Minister Fumio Kishida on Saturday welcomed Cambodia’s offer to help Ukraine clear land mines, as Russia’s war on the Eastern European nation continues.

At a joint news conference with Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen after their talks in Phnom Penh, Kishida said training Ukrainian people to use land mine detectors will be a “strong message for the international community.”

The training will be provided by the Cambodian Mine Action Center and the Japan International Cooperation Agency, a government-backed aid agency, according to Kishida.
