HÀ NỘI – President Trần Đại Quang lauded the collaboration between Việt Nam’s Public Security Ministry and Cambodia’s Ministry of Home Affairs as well as their co-operation plan for 2017 during a meeting with Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Home Affairs Samdech Sar Kheng in Hà Nội yesterday.

The President said that the two ministries’ thriving ties reflected the effective cooperation between Việt Nam and Cambodia in protecting national security and social order and safety in each country, strengthening peace and stability in the region and the world.

He expressed hope that the two sides will continue fostering their partnership, while supporting each other in fulfilling all tasks assigned by their Parties, States and people.

The State leader spoke highly of the Cambodian Government’s policy of not allowing hostile forces to use its territory to harm peace, security and stability of other countries, and any extremist forces to incite national enmity.

He thanked the Cambodian side for its support for Vietnamese people in Cambodia to stabilise their lives, as well as its co-operation in border demarcation and border marker planting.

He affirmed the Vietnamese Party, State and people’s thankfulness to the Cambodian people for their support in the past struggle for independence and the current national construction.

Samdech Sar Kheng said that in order to implement co-operation between the two countries more effectively, Cambodia plans to hold a conference on the development of localities along the Việt Nam-Cambodia border. His country is discussing the idea with Việt Nam, he added.

The Cambodian Deputy PM said that his visit is an opportunity to express his sincere gratitude to the Party, State and people of Viet Nam for saving Cambodian people from the genocidal catastrophe caused by the Khmer Rouge regime.

Without the victory on January 7, 1979, the Cambodian people would have no happiness today, he stated.

Prime Minister Nguyễn Xuân Phúc affirmed Việt Nam’s policy of reinforcing the traditional friendship with Cambodia in a meeting with Samdech Sar Kheng yesterday.

PM Phúc said that the public security forces of the two countries should increase all-level delegation exchanges, while promoting existing co-operation mechanisms. 

They need to consistently pursue the principle of not allowing any hostile forces to use either country’s territory to harm the other’s peace, security and stability, he said, adding that they should co-ordinate closely to foil all schemes of hostile forces and those who harm the interests and security of each country. 

The PM also proposed that the Cambodian side create favourable conditions for the Vietnamese community in the country to settle, strengthening bilateral ties. 

For his part, Samdech Sar Kheng noted that Cambodia’s Ministry of Home Affairs and the Ministry of Public Security of Việt Nam have enjoyed fruitful co-operation, especially in the past decade. 

The two sides have collaborated in ensuring a shared border of peace, security, friendship and co-operation, he said, thanking the Vietnamese side for its support in material, personnel training and experience sharing. 

Claiming that the crime situation is becoming more complicated, he stressed the need for the two ministries to further their ties.
