“Phnom Penh: General Hok Lundy, the Director General of National Police, expressed his optimism about the cooperation between the [Cambodian] National Police and the Federal Bureau of Investigation [FBI] of the United States of America.

“He expressed this opinion in an interview with CTN [Cambodian Television Network] which was broadcast on Thursday. He is invited by the FBI for an official visit to the United States of America starting from Friday, 20 April.

“He said that during the visit of him and a delegation from the National Police, he may meet with secretaries of three important US ministries, such as the Department of State, the Department of Homeland Security, and the Department of Justice, as well as with representatives of the FBI and the Office of National Drug Control Policy [? – or the Organized Crime/Drug Investigation Program? – translated terminology not sure].

“He stated that his visit is really important in order to exchange opinions over prevention of terrorism, cross-border crimes, and drug trafficking, which he considers Cambodia cannot solve alone – it has to cooperate with other countries.

“He added that during the visit he will also meet with the leaders of the Department of State which will focus on actions and measures to prevent trafficking of women and children. He said, ‘We also want to do in Cambodia what the big power countries have done well. We don’t want others to criticize us any longer.’

“Concerning the visit, the Director General expects that the Cambodian police and the FBI will continue to strengthen their cooperation in order to prevent terrorism, drug trafficking, and cross-border crimes which are of joint concern in the region and globally.

“In response to this, he also plans to invite the presidents of the FBI and of the Office of National Drug Control Policy [? – or the Organized Crime/Drug Investigation Program?] to visit Cambodia in order to exchange ideas and experience with each other.” Rasmei Kampuchea, Vol.15, #4263, 20.4.2007
