Translated from Khmer by Socheata
On Sunday, General Yim Pim, commander of Cambodian army unit No. 8 and a former Khmer Rouge army commander, said that several soldiers posted along the border are facing difficulties, therefore a reduction should take place because, right now, the border situation in normal. He added that the presence of locally based soldiers at these (border) locations should be enough to protect the present conditions as Cambodian soldiers know the region very well and they are used to living in the forest, as well as facing malaria and other diseases.
