PHNOM PENH - China on Friday delivered 26 military trucks and 30,000 sets of military uniforms to Cambodia in order to help relieve the difficulties of the Cambodian army.

At a handover ceremony held at the Trucking Battalion No. 99 on the outskirts of the capital Phnom Penh, Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Bu Jianguo said the trucks and uniforms were the aid from the Chinese People's Liberation Army to the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces.

"China hopes that the aid will help ease the difficulties of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, and will further promote ties and cooperation between the armies and peoples of the two countries," she said.

Moeung Samphan, Secretary of State at the Cambodian Ministry of Defense, extended gratitude to the Chinese government and the Chinese People's Liberation Army for continuous supports to Cambodia.

"The aid is timely as Cambodia is facing shortage of military materials," he said.  "This truly reflects China's attention to assist Cambodia and it will create closer friendship relations and solidarity between the armies of the two countries."
