Cambodia has postponed two military cooperation programs with Australia, following the country's disputed election and growing political tension.
The ABC has confirmed the two programs are in counter-terrorism and maritime security.
An Australian Defence Force spokesperson says no reason was given for the postponement and that other programs continue as normal.
It follows revelations from the US State Department earlier in the week that Cambodia had suspended some of its military cooperation programs.
Spokeswoman Marie Harf said that the decision was made unilaterally by Cambodia.
However Cambodia's defence ministry denied that it had suspended or cancelled the programs, stating they have merely been postponed until a new government is formed.
But some analysts believe it's a pre-emptive move by Cambodia, should the US and other foreign governments decide to cut aid assistance if the July 28 election is found to be flawed.
Some US lawmakers have called for aid to Cambodia to be cut, after the elections were allegedly marred by widespread cheating.
