Malaysian ambassador to Cambodia Eldeen Husaini said he expects a joint military drill with Cambodia to happen next year, while military courses under the Malaysian Defence Cooperation Programme (MDCP) could be brought directly to the Kingdom.
Eldeen revealed the plan during a lunch gathering with alumni and participants from Cambodia who received military training under the MDCP. He said the military programme would continue to be provided to Cambodia.
While military cooperation between the two nations is currently strong, he added, it could be improved.
“Even though the cooperation and agreements are there, I can still see potential for us to grow even closer. We plan to offer more courses and hold military exercises together with Cambodia,” Eldeen said. Photos Hean Rangsey
