DPM Hor Namhong Receives Outgoing ICRC Head of Mission

Deputy Prime Minister H.E. Hor Namhong received here on Jan. 19 Mr. Bart Vermeiren, outgoing Head of Mission of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) in Cambodia.

In the meeting, H.E. Hor Namhong spoke highly of the contribution made by Mr. Bart Vemeiren's mission throughout his term in Cambodia, especially in the area of humanitarian response.

ICRC has played an important role in assisting Cambodian people after the fall of Khmer Rouge regime in 1979, wherein millions of Cambodians underwent severe food shortage and starvation, said H.E. Hor Namhong.

The Cambodian DPM encouraged the new ICRC Mission to continue the close cooperation with the Cambodian Red Cross.
