Vietnam treasures traditional friendship with Cambodia: PM

Vietnam wants to promote its traditional friendship with Cambodia in the spirit of mutual cooperation and prosperity, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc said on October 16.

Hosting a reception for Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection Men Sam An in Hanoi, PM Phuc believed that bilateral relations will be driven forward, especially after the official visit to Vietnam by Prime Minister Hun Sen earlier this month.

Both sides inked ten cooperation documents during Hun Sen’s stay, two of which recognised the completion of 84 percent of land demarcation and marker planting, he added, describing this as a vivid illustration of their efforts, goodwill, neighbourliness and mutual trust and understanding.

The Vietnamese Government leader expressed his hope that Men Sam An, in her important roles, will continue persuading Cambodian organisations and individuals to support the two legislatures’ early ratification of the two documents.

He also hoped the Cambodian Government will continue to support Vietnamese nationals so that they can have a stable life and make positive contributions to the host nation.

Lauding the close cooperation between the Government Inspectorate of Vietnam (GIV) and the Cambodian Ministry of National Assembly-Senate Relations and Inspection, PM Phuc affirmed the Vietnamese Government always creates favourable conditions for the two inspection bodies to enhance coordination.

He asked the GIV to do its utmost to back the Cambodian inspectorate in human resources training and experience sharing in the field.

Men Sam An, for her part, spoke highly of the signing of the cooperation deals between the two governments, while expressing her delight at he robust socio-economic development in Vietnam.

She reiterated Cambodia’s determination to preserve the traditional friendship with Vietnam, and took the occasion to thank the Vietnamese Party, Government and people for helping Cambodia overthrow the Khmer Rouge regime.

She said the two inspection bodies have enjoyed sound relations over the past time, adding they have exchanged inspection experience while the GIV has provided training for Cambodian inspectors.

Cambodia wants to boost collaboration between the two inspection organisations, and will make concerted efforts to implement agreements signed between the two governments as well as enhance delegation exchanges to promote the traditional friendship, she stressed.
