Namibia, Cambodia to establish diplomatic ties - by Staff Reporter

WINDHOEK – Namibia is to establish diplomatic relations with the Kingdom of Cambodia.

Cabinet has approved the establishment of diplomatic relations between Namibia and Cambodia.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has been directed to empower Namibia’s Permanent Representative to New York in the United States to sign the necessary documents on the establishment of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

After many years of civil war, the Cambodian conflict came to an end and an election was organised by the United Nations under the auspices of the UN Transitional Authority of Cambodia.

Elections took place in 1993. In the same year, a new constitution was promulgated, establishing the Kingdom of Cambodia.

In 1998, another round of elections took place and Cambodia experienced peace and stability for the first time in 30 years. The country’s economy has improved, tourism has rebounded and improvements are taking place on infrastructure.

Namibia was one of the countries that sent a sizable contingent to join the UN peacekeeping mission in Cambodia in 1993.
