Phnom Penh (FN), Dec. 11 - Tea Banh, Minister of National Defense said that the presence of the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) in Cambodia shows that Cambodia did not take the chemical weapons issues to attack the United States.

The claim was made on Monday morning at the opening ceremony of the Nuclear Radiation Chemical Action Plan.

The sending of OPCW technical team to Cambodia came after the Royal Government of Cambodia submitted a formal letter requesting the organization to send technical team to clean chemical bombs found in Svay Rieng province in accordance with the UN Convention on Chemical Weapons.

For the operation of OPCW in Cambodia, it will take place in three provinces including  Mondulkiri, Tbong Khmum and Svay Rieng province, with the largest number of chemical bombs.
