Tea Banh praises military’s efforts on border

Minister of National Defence Tea Banh called on officers and soldiers to strengthen defences in all border areas to guarantee social security and protect the Kingdom’s territorial integrity.

He made the recommendation while visiting Military Region 5 troops stationed near the construction site of the "Win-Win Monument" in Anlong Veng district, Oddar Meanchey province.

“We should continue to strengthen cooperation with friendly countries along the borders, in line with government policy. We must also redouble our efforts to prevent all kinds of illegal cross-border activities between neighbouring countries,” he said.

While visiting the site, Tea Banh offered his praise to the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) for what they had achieved.

“You have maintained Cambodia’s independence while strengthening cooperation with friendly countries along the border. Good-neighbourly relations and traditional friendships have turned this former battlefield into a development zone,” he told the assembled soldiers.
