Vietnam treasures ties with Cambodia

VOV.VN - Vietnam always places importance and top priority on the development of good neighbourliness, time-honoured friendship, and comprehensive, sustainable, and long-term cooperation with Cambodia.

Politburo member Tran Quoc Vuong, permanent member of the Communist Party of Vietnam (CPV) Central Committee’s Secretariat made the statement at a reception for visiting Honorary President of the Cambodian People’s Party and President of the Cambodian National Assembly Samdech Heng Samrin in Hanoi on May 28.

He congratulated Cambodia on its outstanding achievements in the recent past, including the outcomes of the third mandate municipal and provincial town and district council elections on May 26.

Vuong showed his elation at the deeper and more effective cooperation across a variety of fields between the two countries’ parties and states, which was remarkably attributable to the contributions by the Vietnamese and Cambodian parliaments.

He said he hopes the top Cambodian legislator will strongly support bilateral cooperation policies and continue to enhance experience and information exchanges, bolster coordination at regional and international forums, and direct ministries, departments, and localities to effectively carry out treaties and agreements signed by the two countries.

He suggested that the Cambodian parliament continue facilitating the issuance of legal documents for Cambodian people of Vietnamese origin, and urging Cambodia’s relevant agencies to closely work with Vietnamese counterparts for the early completion and signing of legal documents to recognise the completed 84% of the workload in border demarcation.

Samdech Heng Samrin, in turn congratulated Vietnam on its achievements recorded over the years, and believed that Vietnamese people will succeed with even greater achievements in the renovation process under the leadership of the CPV, as well as achieve the targets set at the 12th Party Congress.

He expressed his deep gratitude for the valuable assistance Vietnam has given to Cambodia in the cause of national liberation and in saving the Cambodian people from the genocidal regime, as well as in the current national construction and defence. 

The NA President also briefed the host about the positive outcomes of the talks between the two legislatures, and affirmed that his nation will boost closer coordination with Vietnam to realize agreements, treaties, and joint statements signed during the visits of the two countries’ Party and State leaders.
