Vietnam and Cambodia have agreed to implement guidelines of the two countries’ Prime Ministers to examine and determine Vietnam-Cambodia friendship monuments to be repaired, renovated and restored.

The agreement was reached following a meeting between Defence Minister Nguyen Thanh Cung and Min Khin , Vice Chairman and General Secretary of the Solidarity Front for Development of the Cambodian Motherland ( SFDCM ), in Ho Chi Minh City.

Cung appreciated Cambodia’s construction and maintenance of friendship monuments, adding they help promote the relationship between the two countries.

Cung hoped that the Vietnamese Ministry of Defence and the SFDCM would closely coordinate in relevant issues.

Min Khin, who is also Minister of Cults and Religious Affairs, agreed with Cung on repairing, renovating and restoring Vietnam-Cambodia friendship monuments that honour voluntary Vietnamese soldiers who assisted Cambodia and its people in ending the genocide regime in 1979.-VNA
