Lieutenant General Hun Manet, the Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces and the commander of the army’s infantry, is to visit the US from April 8 to 12 to attend the Pacific Area Special Operations Conference in Honolulu, Hawaii.

US embassy spokesperson Emily Zeeberg confirmed on Monday that Hun Manet was to participate in a “brief, technical-level, multilateral conference focused on counter-terrorism”.

He was invited in his capacity as Commander of the National Counter-Terrorism Special Forces (NCTSF) as one of approximately 36 commanders of counter-terrorism units from Indo-Pacific nations.

Zeeberg said the US has worked with the Cambodian military for many years on a wide variety of transnational issues, including counter-terrorism, maritime safety, training troops for peacekeeping operations, combating threats to international maritime security and responding to natural disasters and humanitarian crises.

“The US believes a productive military-to-military relationship can help Cambodia maintain its sovereignty free from coercion, to ensure the country’s peace, prosperity and independence for future generations,” she said.
