PHNOM PENH, June 15 (Xinhua) — Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said here on Sunday that Cambodia has stand-by troops for U.N. peacekeeping missions.

“Cambodia has stand-by troops for U.N. peacekeeping missions. When U.N. needs necessary forces, we will send them off. However, we won’t send them to fighting countries,” said the Prime Minister while attending a bridge ground-breaking ceremony.

The troops were well trained and equipped with high-quality materials, he added.

Prak Sokhon, chairman of the Cambodian Committee for Sending Troops to U.N. Peacekeeping Missions, told reporters earlier that at least 340 Cambodian officers and soldiers are now reserved for U.N. peacekeeping missions.

Cambodia has sent three batches of peacekeepers to Sudan under the U.N. umbrella in the past three years.

Cambodia has also participated in two international military exercises held in Mongolia and Bangladesh respectively.
