Binh Duong (VNA) – Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc on June 21 welcomed visiting Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen who hailed the brotherly support that Vietnamese Party, Government, army and people gave Cambodia in saving Cambodia from the Pol Pot genocidal regime.

“Without Vietnam’s sacrifice, there would be no Cambodia now”, stated the Cambodian PM at a meeting with officials and locals of the southern province of Binh Duong, which he co-chaired with his Vietnamese counterpart.

PM Hun Sen, who toured southern localities of Vietnam to mark his 40 years’ path of seeking support from Vietnam to salvage Cambodia, wished that the solidarity and friendship between Vietnam and Cambodia will evergreen and last forever.

This year also marks the 50th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two neighbouring countries.

PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc said this is a chance for Vietnam and Cambodia to review the history of solidarity between the two nations in hardship time as well as in peace and prosperity.

“The destiny of the two nations is inseparable. This is a historical truth,” said the PM who affirmed that Vietnam will forever be a faithful friend of Cambodia and the Cambodian people.

In the evening the same day, PM Phuc hosted a banquet for the Cambodian leader and his entourage.

Earlier the same day, PM Hun Sen visited Loc Ninh district of Binh Phuoc province where he and his comrades started their path to save Cambodia from Pol Pot genocidal regime.

In Loc Thanh commune, he cut the ribbon to inaugurate a Culture House as his gift to locals who witnessed the first steps of his revolution career.
