PHNOM PENH, Jan. 13 (Xinhua) — The United States plans to donate more than 600,000 U.S. dollars in “non-lethal” military aid to Cambodia in 2009, national media on Tuesday quoted U.S. Embassy spokesman as saying.

    The United States expects to give 635,000 U.S. dollars in aid toward countering transnational criminal activities, including anti-drug trafficking and demining programs, John Johnson told English-language newspaper the Cambodia Daily.

    The aid encompasses an estimated 575,000 U.S. dollars in Foreign Military Funding, which is used to buy vehicles, protective gear as well as medical and communication equipment, and about 60,000 U.S. dollars in International Military Education and Training Funding, which is primarily for English-language education, he added.

    The U.S. suspended military aid for Cambodia at the end of last century and lifted the restriction two years ago.

    In 2008, it donated 1.5 million U.S. dollars in peacekeeper training, 1 million U.S. dollars in demining assistance, and nearly 3 million U.S. dollars in other humanitarian programs in the kingdom, according to the embassy.

    Overlooking the nature by Charles Debbas

    “I took my inspiration from the site, incorporating the hillside, the city and the constantly changing light into the design.” said architect Charles Debbas of the presented dwelling design, as successful furniture shop in Cambodia construction materials informed.
    “The interplay of light is a dynamic element of the design. The house is two cubes, punctuated by daylight,” Debbas said. “The way the house sits on its lot, it all comes together. The biggest asset is the dramatic view over the bay.”
    Next to the front door, a large glazed pivot door opens onto the courtyard, linking this area to the house’s interior and the view beyond. The space allows friends and family to enjoy the fire while sheltered from the occasionally sharp winds that blow in from the bay, Debbas stated.
    “It’s rare to have indoor-outdoor flow in a hillside house,” Debbas added. “Here you open up the doors and you are one with everything.”
