A special art performance staged by the military art troup of the Cambodian Royal Army took place at the Northern Military Theatre in Hanoi on Aug. 4.

The programme forms part of activities to celebrate the Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Year 2012 and the 45 th anniversary of the diplomatic ties between the two countries.

With songs and dances, the Cambodian military artists praised the land and people of Vietnam and Cambodia as well as the solidarity, friendship and cooperation between the two states, armies and peoples.

They also performed many popular Vietnamese songs.

The programme is seen as a chance for Vietnamese officers and soldiers to understand more about the culture of the neighbouring country./.VNA
