Hanoi (VNA) – President Tran Dai Quang has reassured Vietnam’s consistent support for the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP), the royal government, Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen, and Cambodian people.

During a reception in Hanoi on December 20, President Quang said he believes the visit of the Cambodian PM will create a stronger driving force to fortify long-standing friendship and neighbourliness between the two nations.

He wished that the CPP and PM Hun Sen would score successes in the election of deputies to the communal and district People’s Councils in 2017 and the National Assembly in 2018.

The Vietnamese Party and State highly value positive contributions by the Cambodia PM to the development of friendship, solidarity and all-around cooperation between the two governments and peoples, he stated.

Hun Sen, in reply, informed the outcomes of his talks with PM Nguyen Xuan Phuc the same day.

He conveyed his sincere thanks to the Party, State and people of Vietnam for saving Cambodian people from genocide in the past, saying that the visit is to renew Cambodia’s unchangeable stance on reinforcing amity, solidarity and cooperation for development with Vietnam.

As the two countries are preparing for the 50th anniversary of bilateral diplomatic ties, Hun Sen stressed that it affords a chance for Vietnam and Cambodia to raise public awareness of preserving and promoting invaluable bilateral traditional ties, especially among young generations.-VNA
