Cambodia has sought assistance from the U.S. to build the capacity of Cambodian officials in combating money laundering and terrorism financing, said a spokesperson of the Ministry of Economy and Finance.
The request was made by Cambodian Minister of Economy and Finance H.E. Aun Porn Moniroth during a meeting here on Feb. 26 with visiting Assistant Secretary for Terrorist Financing at the U.S. Department of Treasury H.E. Daniel Glaser, the spokesperson pointed out.
During the meeting, he added, H.E. Aun Porn Moniroth informed his guest of Cambodia’s endeavors in fighting against money laundering and financing terrorism as a member of the Sydney-based Asia-Pacific Group on Money Laundering (APG).
Both sides pledged to further strengthen the cooperation between the two countries, and the U.S. side will consider the technical assistance to help train Cambodian law enforcement officers and other relevant officers.
