Phnom Penh (FN), Jan 13 – Cambodia-China, the ironclad friends, set to hold the Golden Dragon Military Exercise 2020 in mid-March, according to Spokesperson of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) Major General Thong Solimo.

The military drill, with approximately 2,000 attendees, will be held at Techo Sen Chum Kiri Military Institute in Kampot province under the theme “Counter-terrorism and Humanitarian Relief”, the spokesperson said.
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.
