Under the support from Australia, Cambodia on Tuesday organized a series of workshops to train more than 550 people, including judges, prosecutors, senior police officers and soldiers, for anti-terrorism law.

The Cambodian government considered terrorism act as a cruel crime in the history of humanity, and it makes turmoil in the society especially politically, Ang Vong Vathana, Cambodian Justice Minister, said at the closing ceremony for the workshops.

The Cambodian government also considered terrorism act as an international matter, he added.

According to geographical areas, the qualification of policy and economy of Cambodia is not the most important target for terrorism acts, he said, adding that Cambodia needs to prepare ahead to fight against terrorism anyway, to ensure the security and safety for people.

Cambodia also has to join with other countries to eliminate the terrorism acts internationally because the terrorism acts put the people around the world under fears, he said.

Meanwhile, Emily Roper, regional chairwoman of legal aid unit for Ministry of General Prosecutors of Australia, said Cambodia is one of the leading countries in the region making an effort to fight against terrorism acts.

"In our region, we used to suffer seriously from a number of the terrorism acts like Marriot Hotel in Indonesia's capital of Jakarta in August 2003 and Bali in October 2005," she said.

"Therefore, we have to cooperate to combat against it and we have to build network firmly in Asia to respond all threats," she added.

"We need strengthen cooperation in the exercises of the anti-terrorism law," she said, adding that Australia is very happy to see the contribution of Cambodia in fighting against the terrorism acts.
