Phnom Penh (FN), Jun. 8 – Cambodian defense minister Tea Banh said that the war happening in Ukraine has become a new turning point of global ideological and geopolitical divisions, speaking at the groundbreaking ceremony on Wednesday (Jun 8).

Tea Banh said that the outbreak of war in Ukraine has also created a volatile global security environment with high uncertainty and unpredictable dangers, especially the negative repercussions of post-COVID19 socio-economic development.

"At the same time, this war marked the return of fierce rivalry between the great powers, which has become a new turning point of ideological and geopolitical divisions, where small states are forced to choose between the major powers involved,” the minister underlined.

The Russian-Ukrainian war has been prolonged for more than three months.
