Quang made the praise after hearing reports on developments on human rights in Cambodia presented by UN Special Repporteur Surya Prasad Subedi and Cambodian Ambassador Su Suon, Head of the Cambodian Mission to the UN and other international organisations in Geneva , at the 18th session of the UN Human Rights Council on Sept. 28.

The results were gained in economic, cultural, social and political fields, particularly in raising the people’s living standards, achieving the UN’s Millennium Development Goals, improving the legislative system and the fight against corruption, Quang said.

Vietnam applauds Cambodia ’s commitments and its serious attitude at the Universal Periodic Review as well as the country’s good will in dialogue and cooperation with other UN human rights establishments, especially with the Special Rapporteur.
