Japanese Warships to Dock in Sihanoukville for Friendly Visit

Phnom Penh: In a step toward bolstering military cooperation and cultural ties, Sihanoukville Autonomous Port is set to welcome two vessels from the Japanese Maritime Self-Defense Force (JMSDF) this week. The port, located in the heart of Cambodia's coastal Preah Sihanouk province, will host the visiting ships from February 22 to 24, marking a notable occasion in the ongoing friendship between Cambodia and Japan.

The arrival of the DDG-172, TV-3521 SHIMAKAZE, measuring 150 meters in length, 16.4 meters in width, and 4.8 meters in depth, alongside the DD-114 SUZUNAMI, stretching 151 meters long, 17.4 meters wide, and 5.3 meters deep, is expected to be a highlight of the visit. Accompanying the vessels, a total of 435 crew members will participate in a series of engaging activities aimed at enhancing the bilateral military rapport between the two nations.

This three-day visit is more than just a routine stop; it's a gateway to various technical and cultural exchange programs designed to deepen the mutual understanding and cooperation between Cambodia and Japan. Among the planned activities are friendly sports competitions, allowing naval officials from both countries to engage in goodwill games, fostering a spirit of camaraderie and sportsmanship.

As Cambodia and Japan continue to explore avenues for strengthened partnerships, this visit stands as a testament to their commitment to peace, cooperation, and shared prosperity.
