Golden Hanuman exercise ends
The five-day Golden Hanuman 2019 military exercise in Kampot province ended yesterday and has been hailed as a big success.

During its closing ceremony, General Vong Pisen, Royal Cambodian Armed Force commander-in-chief, congratulated all officers and soldiers who participated in the exercise for making it a success.

He said that the exercise also helped the armed forces to improve its capacity to strengthen border security with neighbouring countries to ensure peace, cooperation and trade between the people of these countries.

“Our military exercise is not to prepare our armed forces to threaten other countries,” Gen Pisen said, noting that Mr HE has previously said that Cambodia only uses its armed forces to participate in United Nation Peacekeeping mission.

Major General Hem Tha, deputy commander of Brigade 70, said that the military exercise was successful because officers and soldiers worked hard to complete their drills during the five days from May 4 to May 8.

“The Golden Hanuman 2019 has been hailed as being 100 percent successful,” he noted.
