Senior Minister Ly Thuch Says Deminers Leave a Valuable Legacy

Stung Treng: The First Vice President of the Cambodian Mines Authority, Mr. Ly Thuch has praised the contribution of donors, especially organizations working directly on demining and explosive remnants in Cambodia, as deminers not only contributed to saving lives not only the basics, but also the achievements as well as valuable achievements for the family and society.

During Mr. Ly Thuch visit to CMAC to clear cluster munitions in collaboration with Japan Mine Action Service (JMAS) and post-clearance community development in Sesan district, Stung Treng province, with the support of the Royal Government and the people of Japan on 8 January, he has commended JMAS' support for demining and on-site development with the aim of improving the livelihoods of local people after the clean-up, and thanked the CMAC Center, especially the deminers who have sacrificed everything to provide safe land to the people of Cambodia.
