On the day, Cambodian Foreign Minister Hor Namhong held talks with his visiting Thai counterpart Tanasak Patimapragorn to seek to boost cooperation between the two neighbours.

Patimapragorn’s visit was key to further enhancing the friendly ties and cooperation between the two countries, Hor Namhong said.
