Eleven X-ray scanners will soon install at international border crossings in order to prevent cross-border weapon smuggling and drug trafficking, according to General Department of Immigration (GDI).
GDI released that Japanese government donates it to help authorities  beef up security as Cambodia will host ASEAN Summit in November.
GDI deputy director-general Long Habana – who is also the technical team leader for the management of the scanners – said it will be installed at 11 international border crossings soon.
Sek Sokhom, spokesman for Banteay Meanchey Provincial Administration, said the extra assistance with border security was especially timely.
He said a delegation from the Cambodia military in charge of border security will travel to Thailand attend a three-day meeting with their Thai counterparts in May. The meeting is aimed at boosting cooperation between Thai Military Region 1 and Cambodian Military Region 5 on tourism, education and transnational crimes, such as cross-border drug trafficking.
He said such meetings held regularly between the armies of both country to promote cooperation and to ease tensions. Their aim was to make the border between the two nations a border of peace.
