Phnom Penh (VNA) – Cambodia’s Minister of Information Khieu Kanharrith spoke highly of the effective cooperation between Vietnamese and Cambodian press agencies since 1993 at a reception in Phnom Penh on July 6.

At his meeting with correspondents from the Vietnam News Agency, Vietnam Television, Voice of Vietnam, and Nhan dan (People) Newspaper, Kanharrith thanked the Vietnamese press agencies for reporting fully, honestly and objectively the situation in Cambodia, especially its politics, social affairs and economic development, including the communal election on June 4.

He recalled the prompt and effective assistance of Vietnamese experts in helping Cambodia build and develop its press and communications system in the 1980s.

The Vietnamese correspondents have fulfilled their professional missions and acted as a bridge for Cambodian press agencies to partner with local Vietnamese press outlets over the past decade, he said.

Head of the Vietnam News Agency’s representative office in Cambodia Tran Chi Hung thanked Minister Kanharrith and Cambodian counterparts for supporting the Vietnamese press agencies’ representative offices to carry out their tasks, thus helping Vietnamese readers understand better about the social-political situation in Cambodia and enhancing the bilateral traditional friendship and neighbourliness.-VNA
