The Cambodian United Front for National Construction and Defence (CUFNCD) will do its utmost to maintain and lift the Vietnam-Cambodia traditional friendship to a new height.

Min Khin, Cambodian Minister of Cults and Religion and Secretary General of the CUFNCD’s National Council, made this affirmation at a reception hosted by Politburo Member Le Hong Anh in Hanoi on December 18.

Min Khin thanked Vietnam for its valuable, timely and effective support and help to the Cambodian people’s struggle against Pol Pot genocidal regime and their national construction and protection.

He informed his host of the outcomes of the talks with the Communist Party of Vietnam’s Central Committee (CPVCC)’s Commission for Mass Mobilisation, affirming that Cambodia will work closely with Vietnam to implement agreements and joint communiqués made during visits of the two countries’ high-ranking leaders.

Anh, who is also the permanent member of the CPVCC’s Secretariat, affirmed Vietnam always attaches importance to and prioritises the consolidation and development of the two countries’ neighbourliness, traditional friendship and comprehensive cooperation.

He said he hopes that the two sides will closely coordinate in the exchange of experience in mass mobilisation, support each other and educate the two peoples, especially the youth, about the Vietnam-Cambodia relationship.-VNA
