Norway continues to support demining activities in Cambodia

The Government of Norway through Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) confirmed its commitment to continue supporting Cambodia’s mine clearance efforts by providing $5 million for the next four years.

The assistance was made known by Mr. Zlatko Vezillic, Programme Manager for NPA’s Cambodia’s Mine Action and Disarmament programme while paying a farewell visit to Cambodian Senior Minister and First Vice President of Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) Ly Thuch.

Mr Thuch expressed his profound thanks to Norway for its active contribution to mine clearance activities in the Kingdom so as to achieve the status of landmine-free Cambodia by 2025.

He also spoke highly of the success of Mr. Vezillic’s four-year mission in the Kingdom. After Cambodia, he will assume the new role as NPA’s Operations Manager in Zimbabwe.
