Vietnam-Cambodia ties continue to flourish

The Vietnam-Cambodia relationship over recent years has been developing unceasingly both in depth and scope with higher efficiency.

Vietnam’s National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Phu Trong made the remark while receiving a delegation of the Cambodian National Assembly Committee for Foreign Affairs, International Cooperation, Information and Media, led by its Chairman Chheang Vun, in Hanoi on July 17.

Chairman Trong said the two sides should further coordinate in order to complete border demarcation and landmark planting by 2012, and to accelerate cooperation programmes and projects. The two countries also should coordinate more at multilateral forums, he added.

On the occasion, Chairman Trong expressed thanks to the Cambodian government and people for their support and assistance in the search for and repatriation of the remains of Vietnamese voluntary soldiers in Cambodia, and in stabilising the lives of overseas Vietnamese.

Chairman Chheang Vun said his country’s achievements in the past struggle for national liberation and the present cause of national construction were inseparable from Vietnam’s valuable assistance.

He briefed his host on the results of his talks with the Vietnam NA Committee on Foreign Affairs, where the two sides agreed to promote the teaching of the Vietnamese and Cambodian languages and the tradition of friendship and cooperation to benefit the young generations of the two nations.

He also spoke of the need to strengthen the cooperation between the Committees on Foreign Affairs of the NA’s of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia in order to support their Governments in developing their border areas, where a large population of ethnic minority people are living in poverty.

The Cambodian delegation, during their working visit to Vietnam from July 16-27, will attend a conference to be held in Kon Tum province on the legislative body’s role in boosting friendship and cooperation and developing the border areas of Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia.

During their stay in Vietnam, the Cambodian delegation will work with the Party Central Committee’s Commission for External Relations, and visit Da Nang city, Kon Tum province and Ho Chi Minh City.
