The Australian government said that Refugees rejected by Australia will soon fly from the Pacific atoll of Nauru to be resettled in Cambodia.

The specific nationalities of the people to be sent to Cambodia were not released but refugees from many countries, including Sri Lanka, Pakistan, Afghanistan and Iran have tried to reach Australia in recent years.

Australian Broadcasting Corporation reported that a charter flight on Monday will fly the first refugees to be resettled in Phnom Penh under a bilateral agreement signed by Cambodia and Australia last September.

Australia refuses to resettle refugees who attempt to reach its shores by boat.

It pays Nauru to house asylum seekers and has a similar deal with Papua New Guinea.
