Small Weapon and Gun Control Capacity Building for Officials

Royal Government of Cambodia in cooperation with the United Nations counterpart is organising a two-day capacity building workshop for Cambodian officials on small weapon and gun control.

Falling on Dec. 7 to 8, the workshop is taking place at an outsourced venue here in Phnom Penh.

According to H.E. Sieng Lapresse, Advisor and Representative of the Royal Government of Cambodia, in addition to technical gun control capacity building, the session also intends to discuss the draft convention against firearm trafficking that Cambodia is the lead to develop for other ASEAN member countries to review.

The capacity building and discussion are supported by the United Nations Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Asia and the Pacific (UNRCPD).

The workshop, added H.E. Sieng Lapresse, will contribute significantly to peace, security and development of Cambodia.
