PHNOM PENH – National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyễn Thị Kim Ngân and President of the Senate of Cambodia Say Chhum vowed to do their best to strengthen ties between the two legislatures through high-level visits during their meeting in Phnom Penh yesterday.
Ngân suggested the two countries further raise public awareness of mutual support for each other among young generations.
She also took the occasion to ask the Vietnamese NA, the Cambodian Senate and legislature to continue their mutual assistance.
Speaking highly of the Senate President’s role in fostering ties between the two States, NAs and peoples, Ngân wished that in his position, Chhum will continue boosting bilateral ties.
The guest wished that Cambodia will successfully hold the election of deputies to the communal and district councils and the NA by 2018.
Chhum thanked the Vietnamese legislature for its assistance in personnel training and infrastructure.
He congratulated Việt Nam on its achievements under the leadership of the Communist Party of Việt Nam and wished that Việt Nam will reap more successes.
Host and guest hoped that the two countries would settle remaining issues to build a border of peace, friendship, co-operation and development, saying that the completion of demarcation is a great asset.
The same day, Ngân paid a courtesy call to Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni.
She made it clear that the Vietnamese Party, State, NA and people will nurture the traditional friendship with Cambodia.
The guest asked the King to instruct concerned agencies to help Vietnamese nationals in the country.
The Vietnamese legislature will strive together with the Cambodian Senate and NA to share information and legislation experience, as well as work together to monitor the implementation of signed agreements, she said.
The King affirmed that the Cambodian people remember the great support of Vieät Nam, especially during national liberation and current national development.
He believed that the visit would further tighten neighbourliness and long solidarity between the two countries.
Before leaving Cambodia for Myanmar for a visit and to attend the 37th ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly, Ngân met Vietnamese nationals living in Cambodia, visited Cho Ray Phnom Penh hospital and Angkor Milk plant. — VNS
