Kuwait has pledged $5 million to build an Islamic center at Phnom Penh’s most conspicuous mosque, following an official Kuwaiti delegation earlier this week.

The center will be built, via the Cambodian government, on the grounds of Boeung Kak Mosque, in the north of the city.

Construction on the Islamic center will be started this year, said Ahmad Yahya, a government adviser and president of the Cambodian Islamic Development Community.

The Kuwaiti government also agreed to train Cambodian officials in oil exploration and open direct flights to Cambodia, and both sides agreed allow embassies in their respective capitals.
