HA NOI (VNS)— President Truong Tan Sang received Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs Sar Kheng in Ha Noi yesterday.

At the reception, Sang expressed his pleasure at Cambodia's socio-economic stability, despite world and regional downturn in the last year.

He spoke highly of the co-operative ties between the Cambodian Ministry of Home Affairs and the Vietnamese Ministry of Public Security, and said he believed that agreements reached by the leaders from both sides would create a foundation to fulfill their tasks.

The President said he hoped the upcoming general election in Cambodia would be a success.

For his part, Sar Kheng affirmed that traditional relations between the two ministries had developed well, especially co-operation in human resources development.

He said he believed the two countries' co-operation in preventing crime and maintaining security would become more effective this year thanks to the implementation of their newly signed agreements.

Earlier, Sar Kheng met with Minister of Public Security Tran Dai Quang in which the two sides agreed to work on various agreements, such as on co-operating to prevent human trafficking, transnational crimes, smuggling and drugs.

For this year, both ministries would continue working on maintaining political and social stability and to effectively carry out measures to foster security in the T-junction area (Viet Nam, Laos, and Cambodia). — VNS
