2020 marks the fourth Golden Dragon Military Exercise between China and Cambodia, following the first in 2016. The training has involved mine clearance, destruction of unexploded ordnance or chemical weapons, fighting with tanks, rescuing hostages, and humanitarian affairs.

Golden Dragon Military Exercise aims to strengthen the alliance of both military forces in combating terrorism; maintaining stability; assisting in disaster relief; and, in a general sense, safeguarding peace and security nationally and globally.

According to Ith Sarath, RCAF deputy commander, the exercises are in the form of military brigade, intervention, including armoured vehicles, tanks and artillery reinforcements and BM21 RM70 strategic rifles. The participating troops from the two countries will have training of such professional subjects as anti-terror equipment operating, light weapons live-fire practice, unarmed wrestle, simulated airborne landing, penetrating maneuver, man hunting and searching.

Cambodia has a long and strong defence relationship with China, given that Beijing is the Kingdom’s largest donor of military aids.

The world’s biggest military has been forced to suspend all large-scale joint drills, with the coronavirus epidemic
disrupting transport and allocations of military resources around the country.
To help contain the epidemic, the People’s Liberation Army (PLA) sent more than 10,000 medical personnel to the central Chinese city of Wuhan and other hard-hit areas in Hubei province, according to Chen Jingyuan, head of the Logistic Support Department’s medical bureau under the Central Military Commission (CMC).

This mission also involved the deployment of various transport aircraft, including the Y-20, the biggest in the air force’s fleet, from various theatre commands.

The defence ministry said the military was now focused on the battle against the epidemic, forcing the PLA to suspend some of its “large-scale drills and training plans”.
