Phnom Penh, October 20 (VNA) – A representative from the Cambodian Defence Ministry presented outstanding literature and art works lauding Vietnam – Cambodia, and Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia friendship to the Vietnam’s Defence Attaché Agency in Phnom Penh on October 20. 

The works were chosen from more than 600 ones in a competition launched by the Cambodian Defence Ministry in response to the campaign on composing literature and art works on the Vietnam-Laos-Cambodia fighting solidarity. The campaign was co-organised by the General Political Department of the Vietnam People’s Army, the Royal Cambodian Army and the People’s Army of Laos in celebration of the 50th anniversary of Vietnam-Cambodia ties, the 40th anniversary of the signing of the Vietnam-Laos Treaty of Amity and Cooperation and the 55th anniversary of Vietnam-Laos relations. 

Speaking at the event, General Director of the Cambodian Defence Ministry’s Defence Services Meas Savon said the competition helps Cambodian officers and soldiers improve their writing, photographing and filming skills and understand more about the friendship between the three countries’ armies. 

Entries were mostly paintings, poems, stories, films and photos, many of them praised valuable support of the Vietnamese volunteer soldiers in the fight against the Pol Pot regime, saving Cambodian people from the genocidal catastrophe. 

Vietnamese defence attaché in Cambodia Col. Nguyen Anh Dung said these literature and art works will contribute to strengthening the friendship among Vietnam, Laos and Cambodia, and between Vietnam and Cambodia in particular.
