Long An (VNA)
– A delegation from Cambodia’s Svay Rieng and Pray Veng provinces visited the southern province of Long An on February 9 to extend greetings to local Party Committee, authorities and people on the occasion of Lunar New Year.

The delegation includes Governor of Svay Rieng province Men Vibol and Deputy Governor of Pray Veng province Chanh Tha.

Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Van Can expressed his delight to welcome the delegation, saying that their visit is a vivid manifestation for the good neighbourliness and traditional friendship between the two countries.

Last year, Long An province and Cambodia’s border localities like Svay Rieng and Pray Veng carried out cooperation in various fields, especially they joined hands to organise activities to mark 50 years of Vietnam-Cambodia diplomatic relations and the Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Year, he said.

Can believed that the three localities will boost collaboration in demarcating borderline and planting border markers, making contributions to building and protecting the shared borderline of peace, friendship and cooperation for mutual development.

The Cambodian officials expressed their hope for the further development of the two countries’ solidarity and friendship. - VNA
