Hanoi (VNA) – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam received Cambodian Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith in Hanoi on December 22.

At the reception, Dam noted with pleasure the growing friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries, saying that the two sides have regularly exchanged with and support each other in bilateral frameworks as well as regional and international forums.
 
Celebrations for the 50th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties (June 24) this year afforded both sides a chance to raise the awareness of the public, especially young generations, of the traditional friendship and solidarity between the two countries.

Appreciating cooperation between the Radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) and the Cambodian Ministry of Information and the National Voice of Cambodia, the Deputy PM said VOV assisted Cambodia in installing radio and television stations and improving the capacity of radio and television programme production within the framework of the inter-governmental cooperation agreement.

The host suggested both sides continue increasing coverage in both Vietnamese and Cambodian languages and adding more cultural and art programmes featuring the two countries and their people to raise mutual understanding.

On the occasion, he wished that Cambodia would reap greater achievements in the national construction and successfully hold the Senate and National Assembly elections next year.

Kanharith, for his part, thanked the Vietnamese Government and VOV in particular for their support and informed the host with delight that the VOV and the National Voice of Cambodia signed a cooperation agreement on December 21.-VNA
