Phnom Penh (VNA) – Vietnamese Consul General in Cambodia's Preah Sihanouk province Vu Ngoc Ly led a Vietnamese delegation to Kep and Kampot provinces to lay flowers at the Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Monuments in the two localities to commemorate Vietnamese martyrs who died in battle in the neighbouring country.

The delegation comprised representatives from the Khmer-Vietnam Association in the province and a number of Vietnamese war veterans residing in Kep and Kampot.

The Consul General took the occasion to extend regards and present gifts to Vietnamese veterans who joined the Cambodian liberation forces to save  Cambodia from the Pol Pot genocidal regime.

Hoang Duc Ha, President of the Khmer-Vietnam Association in Kampot thanked the Vietnamese Party, State and Consulate General for the attention, which he described as a motivation for Vietnamese veterans to make more contributions to the development of Cambodia as well as the friendship between the two countries.

On the occasion of the 77th founding anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Army (December 22), the Vietnamese Embassy in Phnom Penh, the Vietnamese Consulate General in Battambang and Cambodians of Vietnamese origin in many Cambodian localities also organised activities to pay tribute to Vietnamese heroic martyrs./.
