The Party and State always pay special attention to the Vietnamese community in Cambodia, said National Assembly Chairman Nguyen Sinh Hung.

Hung made the statement while meeting with representatives of overseas Vietnamese living in six southern Cambodian provinces at the Vietnamese Consulate General in SihanoukVille province on September 18.

He spoke highly of great contributions made by OVs in Cambodia during the revolutionary cause under the leadership of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

Overseas Vietnamese should integrate deeper into the Cambodian society, abide by the law and respect customs of the country, he recommended.

The NA Chairman expressed his belief that the Vietnamese community in Cambodia will uphold the tradition of patriotism, solidarity and mutual assistance to build a stable life in their second homeland, helping foster the friendship and solidarity between the two nations.
