"Cambodia plans to take part in the demining process in Azerbaijan," said Cambodian National Mine Action Agency Somaji Crack, APA reports.

He said his organization was interested in working with the Japan International Cooperation Agency in the South Caucasus.

"Our main activity is demining Cambodia," he said. We are the central executive body of the Cambodian government in this area. The center was established in 1993 with the participation of the United Nations. As a center, we have cleared 4.6 million mines on 4,000 hectares in Cambodia so far. Our state also promotes demining process through international cooperation. We share our experience with other mine-affected countries and provide assistance to countries such as Angola and Mozambique in this area. Experience is exchanged with these countries and training is organized.

Somaji Crack said Cambodia was ready to share its experience in demining with Azerbaijan.

"We also plan to help Azerbaijan within the South Caucasus program. We are very interested in participating in the South Caucasus demining program and attach great importance to the exchange of experience. "We will discuss ways to implement this cooperation through the Japan International Cooperation Agency."
