Prime Minister Hun Sen and his Vietnamese Counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc today signed seven Memorandum of Understandings and agreements in a bid to further strengthen bilateral relation and mutual ties.
The agreements signed in Hanoi this Friday, including aid, in which Vietnam offered support for Cambodia’s efforts to tackle drug issues in Sihanouk province, and constructing a new administrative building for the National Assembly.
Both leaders also signed on MoUs to further strengthen mutual cooperation in custom affairs, to connect commercial infrastructure along the border between the two countries, and to push bilateral trade, investment, and electricity sectors.
Speaking in a press conference, Prime Minister Hun Sen reiterated his appreciation to Vietnam’s government and its people for strong support to Cambodia, adding that he is committed to maintain deep relations with Vietnam.
“I believe the fast growing development in Vietnam will help this country to achieve its development goal and play an important role in the region and international community,” he said.
“This is another historical visit of mine in Vietnam to witness several great achievements both countries have made, including the agreement on borderline demarcation that is scheduled to be signed Saturday,” Mr Hun Sen added.
On the second day of the visit, both leaders will preside over the Review Conference on Cambodia-Vietnam Land Boundary Demarcation, which is expected to conclude with the signing of two legal documents to acknowledge the completion of 84% of the land boundary demarcation work.
While staying in Hanoi, Prime Minister Hun Sen will lay wreaths and pay homage at the Memorial of National Heroes and Martyrs and Ho Chi Minh Mausoleum.
