Cambodian people living and studying in Australia declared last Sunday that they do not want their country to fall into war again.
They made the comments while greeting the arrival of a high-level delegation from the National Assembly (NA) of Cambodia led by its President Heng Samrin in Brisbane city of Australia, according to a news release of the NA.
The overseas Cambodians also voiced their support to the leadership of the current Royal Government born from the citizens’ will.
They also expressed their thanks to Heng Samrin and other Cambodian leaders for their efforts in bringing about full peace, and reconstructing and developing the country.
After staying in Brisbane for transit flight, Heng Samrin will continue his trip to Canberra where he will attend the 28th Annual Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF-28) to be held from Jan. 13 to 15.
As rotating President of the APPF-27, Heng Samrin will deliver a speech at the official opening ceremony of the APPF-28, and will share his experience in leading and organising the APPF-27 during the Executive Committee Meeting.
Cambodia NA president will also hold bilateral talks with his Australian counterpart and meet with parliamentary leaders of friendly countries with a view to strengthening and expanding the ties of friendship and cooperation within the framework of parliamentary diplomacy.
