The US assistance involves training and exercises to fight terrorism, information sharing, training in surveillance techniques and tracking the flow of terrorist finances around the world.

PHNOM PENH, Aug. 21 (Xinhua) -- The United State will help Cambodia train small amount of soldiers to fight terrorism, Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Defense Tea Banh said here Tuesday.

The military cooperation to combat terrorism between Cambodia and the U.S. will help to make a stable situation in this region and the world, Tea Banh told reporters after a meeting with Admiral Timothy J. Keating, Commander of the U.S. Pacific Command, who is paying a visit here from Aug. 20 to 22.

We have always had good cooperation with other countries too to fight terrorism, he added.

Meanwhile, Keating said that the U.S. is ready to assist Cambodia in military training and exercises in order to improve the country's capabilities to fight terrorism.

The assistance could also involve information sharing, training in surveillance techniques and tracking the flow of terrorist finances around the world, he added.

Admiral Keating commands all U.S. military forces in the Pacific and Indian Ocean areas, a press release from the U.S. embassy said.

The U.S. Pacific Command is a unified command, which includes approximately 300,000 military personnel from the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines, about 20 percent of all active-duty U.S. military forces, it said.
