Australian Immigration Minister Scott Morrison is set to sign a deal on Friday to resettle refugees in Cambodia.

The Cambodian Government revealed on Wednesday that the country’s Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister of Cambodia Sar Keng and Morrison will sign a memorandum of understanding in Phnom Penh on Friday

It is learnt that the resettlement deal will be for up to 1000 asylum seekers who are found to be refugees.

Cambodian officials say the refugees, including Sri Lankans, will be encouraged to work despite the country being among the world’s poorest.
