The Royal Thai Army has helped its Cambodian counterparts clear landmines along the Sa Kaew border over around 1.72 million square metres this fiscal year, said Lt Gen Sitthipol Nimnual.

The director of the Thailand Mine Action Centre (TMAC) visited the border at Sa Kaew’s Ta Phraya district where the TMAC-Cambodian Mine Action Centre project has been carried out.

The operation has been being carried out by the Humanitarian Mine Action Unit headed by Col Chitnupong Rodsiri.

Sitthipol said the operation has so far cleared 2,570 mines.

Lt Nipon Rungruang of the mine team said around 306,100 square metres along the border at Ta Phraya remained to be cleared.
