China Radio International launches broadcasting in Cambodia province


PHNOM PENH -- China Radio International (CRI) on Monday launched the second Cambodia-China Friendship Radio FM 105 Mega Herz in Cambodia's Siem Reap province, according to a press release from the broadcaster.

"The launch of the radio FM 105 in Siem Reap province is to make closer traditional cooperation between the peoples of Cambodia and China," it said. "It is a new cooperation between Cambodia and China on broadcasting services."

The radio will be on air from 06:00 to 24: 00 (local time) every day. It broadcasts in the languages of Khmer, Chinese and English.

The radio's programs include news, current affairs, music, and features on politics, economy, culture, science and technology.

In December 2008, to mark the 50th anniversary of Cambodia- China diplomatic ties, the CRI launched a Cambodia-China Friendship Radio 96.5 Mega Herz in Phnom Penh, broadcasting from Beijing.

Siem Reap is located in Northwest of Cambodia, some 315 kilometers away from Phnom Penh. It houses Angkor Wat temples, one of the World Heritage Sites.
