Myanmar airlifted Thursday eight tons of emergency relief goods to Cambodia, which is suffering the same flood miseries for months as neighboring Thailand.

A military aircraft brought the relief goods consisting of noodles and bottled water to Phnom Penh's Airbase, according to Nhim Vanda, the first vice president of Cambodia's National Committee for Disaster Management (NCDM).

Ambassador of Myanmar to Cambodia Cho Htun Aung said Myanmar is providing assistance in sympathy to the government and people of Cambodia.



About one-third of Cambodia, including 18 cities, have been submerged in flood waters since August. The disaster has killed 250 people and affected 1.5 million of the country's 15 million population. Damages to rice paddies and roads were estimated at $520 million, the NCDM said, according to Xinhua.
