Cambodia-China conduct live-fire exercise
29 march 2018
In a live-fire exercise or LFX, which is part of the Cambodian-Chinese joint military exercise Golden Dragon 2018, a helicopter deploys soldiers to rescue hostages. This took place in Kampong Speu’s Samroang Tong district on March29, at the end of the two-week exercise.

The exercise had helicopters and armoured personnel carriers simulate a military intervention involving hostages. To make the scenario more realistic, the tests of weapons and weapon systems may require the limited use of real ammunition.

The exercise started March 17, a date chosen to celebrate 60 years of diplomatic relations between Cambodia and China. The Golden Dragon is a dry-run of the required response to an outside threat to the security and population of the Kingdom.

I trust the RCAF to defend Cambodia against all threats, both foreign and domestic..... provided it’s not raining and there’s no holidays to celebrate.

Chinese army hails ties with Cambodia
The Chinese People’s Liberation Army has described ties between China and Cambodia as a brotherly relationship, a press release issued yesterday said.

The PLA statement said its commander General Han Weiguo praised both countries’ strong relationship while welcoming Lieutenant General Hun Manet, Royal Cambodian Armed Forces’ Army Commander, who led a delegation to China for a five-day visit on Monday.

The RCAF delegation is visiting China at the invitation of the China’s Ministry of Defence with a purpose to strengthen the relationship and cooperation between both countries’ armies.

Army spokesman Brigadier General Mao Phalla yesterday said that Lt Gen Manet’s visit to China is to focus on the relationship and cooperation between the two armies.

“The visit is to strengthen the relationship between the two armies and seek continued assistance from China,” Gen Phalla said.

He noted that Gen Manet will also discuss more joint military exercises with China ahead of next month’s exercises.

Next month’s joint Cambodia-China Golden Dragon 2019 military exercises will be carried out on a larger scale than ever in Kampot province’s Chol Kiri district.

The 15-day joint military drill will focus on counter-terrorism and humanitarian rescue, engineering and natural disaster response.

After two weeks of rehearsals, the 15-day exercise will begin with a March 13 opening ceremony attended by Royal Cambodian Armed (RCAF) Commander-in-chief General Vong Pisen and end with a March 27 closing ceremony overseen by Defense Minister General Tea Banh, the post said.
