– As many as 68 Cambodian students in Vietnam were introduced to their Vietnamese sponsor families at a meeting in Hanoi on September 15.

Speaking at the meeting, the fifth of its kind, President of the Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Association Vu Mao praised the initiative to find sponsor families for Cambodian students in Vietnam.

Initiated in Hanoi, the programme has come to other localities like the northern province of Thai Binh and Ho Chi Minh City, he said.

Not only families whose members were volunteer soldiers in Cambodia but other families have also registered for sponsoring the students, according to the official.

In his remarks, Cambodian Ambassador to Vietnam Op Sophy highlighted the fine relations between the Vietnamese and Cambodian Parties, States, Governments and peoples.

He said the sponsorship has helped the Cambodian students understand more about the language and traditional culture of Vietnam, expressing his hope that the programme will contribute to preserving and enhancing the long-standing relationship between the two countries./.
