A high-ranking leader from Vietnam’s army has stated that the Vietnamese government, army and people always attach great importance to developing solidarity with their Cambodian counterparts.

Chief of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army, Sen.Lt.Gen Do Ba Ty, made the assertion upon receiving General Mom Som, the Deputy Chief of the General Staff of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, in Hanoi on June 11.

During the reception, Ty praised the outcomes of a working session between General Mom Som and the office of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army, and suggested the two sides continue to enhance their friendly relationship.

He recommended that both countries press ahead with communication campaigns raising soldiers’ and officers’ awareness of the significance and importance of the traditional friendship and the comprehensive long-standing cooperation between the two neighbours.

The Cambodian General agreed with this suggestion and expressed his belief that the ties between the two armies and peoples will develop further in the time to come.-VNA
