Deputy speaker of republic of Serbia National Assembly Vladimir Marinkovic has pledged to bolster bilateral ties and cooperation with Cambodia’s National Assembly.
According to a statement issued today, Khuon Sudary, second vice-president of the National Assembly met Mr Vladimir on Thursday, and both parties discussed on mutual cooperation and exchanged views on mechanisms in strengthening international law and regional cooperation
Mr Vladimir has requested Cambodia to increase further cooperation in fields of trade, economic, tourism, science, and collaboration between the governments of the two countries, the statement said.
Mr Vladimir said in the statement that in the first seven months of 2018, Cambodia goods imported into Serbia was worth about 8.3 million euros although Serbia has yet to export any goods to Cambodia.
At the bilateral level, Mr Vladimir noted that Serbia and Cambodia have a lot of tasks and experiences to share each other, but noted both countries are yet to have a parliamentary relationship.
“In that sense, the two chambers of parliament should have a Serbian-Cambodian parliamentary friendship group,” he said in the statement.
Ms Sudary expressed support to Mr Vladimir’s request, noting that both countries shared similar experience in the past related to civil war.
“Cambodia fully supports Serbia to become a member of the European Union and this is a chance that both countries will be able to increase trade volume,” she said.
Ms Sudary has led a delegation to attend the 141st IPU General Assembly held from Sunday to Thursday in Belgrade, Serbia.
