Kuwait to Train Cambodians in Oil Exploration

Kuwait will help Cambodia with oil exploration, following a meeting Monday between Prime Minister Hun Sen and Kuwaiti Prime Minister Sheik Nasser Al-Sabah.

"Kuwait agreed to send an expert to train Cambodians over oil exploration," government spokesman Khieu Kanharith said after the meeting.

Cambodia is exploring several blocks for offshore oil, attracting the interest of US, French, Japanese and Chinese companies.

Kuwait and Cambodia also agreed to establish embassies and direct flights, while Kuwait will pursue increased agricultural investment in Cambodia, Khieu Kanharith said.
