Vietnam always attaches importance to developing solidarity and friendship with the Government, people and the Royal Army of Cambodia, said a Vietnamese military official.

Deputy Defence Minister, Lieu. Gen. Do Ba Ty, who is also Chief of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army, made this statement at a July 11 reception for General Kham Chia Sa-khuon, Deputy Infantry Commander-in-Chief in the Cambodian Royal Army, who is on a working visit to Vietnam .

Vietnam also remembers the valuable support of the Cambodian Government, army and people during the past war, as well as at the present time, Ty said.

Between 2005 and now, through the signing of a protocol on annual cooperation between the two defence ministries, the cooperation in national defence has shown effective outcomes in numerous areas, contributing to elevating the friendship between the two nations and armies to a new height, he noted.

The Cambodian General briefed his host on outcomes of his working session with the Department of Operation under the Vietnam People’s Army, saying the visit offered a chance for the Department of Operation under the Cambodian Royal Army to learn and exchange experience with Vietnamese military units in term of training, fighting and border work./.
