PHNOM PENH — Viet Nam and Cambodia will continue to work closely to prevent drug trafficking across their common border.
This was announced during the talks between Deputy Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc, Chairman of the National Steering Committee for Drug, AIDS and Prostitution Prevention and Control, and his Cambodian counterpart, General Ke Kim Yan, in Phnom Penh yesterday.
During the talks, the two Deputy PMs said co-operation between the two countries had been increasing in all fields.
Ke Kim Yan said he was grateful to the Vietnamese Party, Government, Army and people for their immense assistance to Cambodian people in escaping from a genocidal regime and rebuilding their country.
Phuc and Ke Kim Yan, who is also President of the Cambodian National Agency for Drug Prevention and Control, exchanged information on the fight against drugs, especially in educating the community and youngsters on their impact.
They proposed ways of strengthening these ties by focusing on exchanging delegations to discuss the drug problem.
