Taking a no-nonsense approach to the country’s deforestation problem, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen says he has given the green-light “that rockets be fired from above.”
Cambodia is considered a “high deforestation” country by the United Nations, but the prime minister’s comments reported by AP mark a serious escalation in the fight to prevent illegal logging.
The prime minister was speaking at the opening of Cambodia’s new Ministry of Environment building on Thursday when he revealed the dramatic anti-illegal logging tactic. Hun Sen told reporters that no rockets have been fired under the new orders as of yet.
