HÀ NỘI — Party General Secretary and President Nguyễn Phú Trọng hosted a reception yesterday for visiting President of the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) and Prime Minister of Cambodia Samdech Techo Hun Sen.
Party General Secretary and President Trọng hailed the significance of the visit by Hun Sen and the Cambodian Government delegation and congratulated Cambodia over the great accomplishments that the Cambodian people have achieved in recent years.
He expressed the belief that under the reign of King Norodom Sihamoni and the leadership of the Senate, the National Assembly and the Government, the Cambodian people would overcome all difficulties to reap even greater achievements for national prosperity and happiness of the people.
CPP President and PM Hun Sen congratulated Việt Nam over its important achievements recently, and expressed his joy at the strengthened relations between Cambodia and Việt Nam.
Informing his host on the situation in Cambodia and the outcomes of his talks with PM Nguyễn Xuân Phúc, PM Hun Sen affirmed that his government would continue working closely with the Vietnamese government to further promote the comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.
Hun Sen voiced his pleasure at the signing of many cooperative documents between Cambodia and Việt Nam, particularly the two documents recognising the completion of 84 per cent of the work in the delimitation and marker planting along the land border between the two countries. He said he would strive for the goal of completing all delimitation and marker planting work within the Cambodian government’s sixth tenure.
Party General Secretary and President Trọng said he rejoiced at the constant development of the relations between the two parties, States and people. He welcomed the two countries’ activities to mark 40 years since the day the two nations fought side by side against the genocidal regime of the Khmer Rouge.
Trọng spoke highly of the co-operation between the two governments over recent years and the efforts of the two countries’ ministries, agencies, sectors and localities to implement agreements signed between the two governments.
He valued the outcomes of the talks between the two PMs, particularly the organisation of a conference reviewing land border delimitation and border marker planting, and the signing of two legal documents recognising the results of the work in the field.
The signed documents would serve as an important foundation for the two countries to work toward full completion of land border delimitation and border marker planting, thus building a borderline of peace, friendship, cooperation and development between Việt Nam and Cambodia, the Vietnamese Party and State leader said. — VNS
