has pledged $5 million to build an Islamic center at Phnom Penh's most conspicuous mosque,
following an official Kuwaiti delegation earlier this week.
The center will be built, via the Cambodian government, on the grounds
of Boeung Kak Mosque, in the north of the city.
Construction on the Islamic center will be started this
year, said Ahmad Yahya, a government adviser and president of the Cambodian
Islamic Development Community.
The Kuwaiti government also agreed to train Cambodian
officials in oil exploration and open direct flights to Cambodia, and
both sides agreed allow embassies in their respective capitals.
