The activity marks 70 years of Vietnam’s War Invalids and Martyrs Day (July 27, 1947).
At the ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador Thach Du and other participants observed a minute of silence to honour Vietnamese soldiers who died in Cambodia in various wars.
The soldiers’ sacrifice helped the Cambodian people escape from the Khmer Rouge genocidal regime and rebuild the country, reinforcing friendship between the two countries.
Another Cambodia-Vietnam Friendship Monument is scheduled to be inaugurated in Cambodia’s Battambang province on July 27.
There are 17 Cambodia-Vietnam Friendship Monuments across Cambodia at present
