HÀ NỘI — Politburo member and Permanent member of the Party Central Committee’s Secretariat Trần Quốc Vượng hosted a reception for a high-ranking Cambodian delegation led by Permanent member of the Standing Board of the Cambodian People’s Party Central Committee Tep Ngorn in Hà Nội on Friday.
During the reception, Tep Ngorn congratulated Việt Nam on its important achievements in recent times, expressing his belief that under the leadership of the Communist Party of Việt Nam (CPV), Vietnamese people would make even greater achievements.
He highlighted the increasingly fruitful development of neighbourliness, traditional friendship and comprehensive co-operation between Việt Nam and Cambodia, saying it contributed to maintaining peace, stability, co-operation and development in the region and the world.
Tep Ngorn, who is also the second Vice President of the Cambodian Senate, said his country would continue to closely co-ordinate with Việt Nam to effectively implement treaties and agreements signed between the two nations.
Vượng said the first-class Friendship Order of the State of Cambodia presented to the Commission for External Relations of the CPV at a ceremony to mark its 70th traditional day also on November 1 was in recognition of the outstanding achievements and great contributions made by the commission in strengthening friendship and solidarity between the two countries.
He highlighted the role the commission in reinforcing and strengthening relations with neighbouring and regional countries, important partners and traditional friends like Cambodia.
The official underlined the significance of the signing of two legal documents to acknowledge the completion of 84 per cent of the land border between the two countries, as well as their bilateral co-operation in recent times. He expressed his hope that the two sides would continue to expand co-operation, share information and experience, and work closely to effectively implement the agreements they had reached.
Việt Nam always prioritised developing Việt Nam-Cambodia relations, considering them a valuable asset of the two nations, he affirmed.
Vượng expressed his hope that the Cambodian Senate, National Assembly and Government would continue to create favourable conditions for Vietnamese businesses operating in Cambodia, and overseas Vietnamese living and working in the country. — VNS
