Message on the occasion of the 70th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations between the Kingdom of Thailand and the Kingdom of Cambodia, H.E. Mr. Don Pramudwinai Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand
Dear readers of Khmer Times,
As we celebrate the 70th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between the Kingdom of Thailand and the Kingdom of Cambodia, I wish to convey the warmest wishes from the people of Thailand to the people of Cambodia on this very special occasion.
We, the Thai and Cambodian peoples, are tied together not only by history but also a shared sense of purpose. The close cooperation between our two countries is multifaceted and cuts across all levels and sectors. Together, we have worked to enhance our physical, institutional and people-to-people connectivity. Among others, we have made a difference for the young people through our long cooperation in education, especially at Kampong Chheuteal and Kampong Speu Institutes of Technology. In the face of emerging infectious diseases, including COVID-19, we have strengthened our cooperation to save our peoples through successive work plans on public health under the Thailand-Cambodia Development Cooperation Programme. Indeed, our collaboration in diverse areas has touched the lives of so many people.
Despite the current COVID-19 pandemic, I strongly believe that our two nations will soon emerge stronger from this unprecedented situation, and that we will further build on the past 70 years of achievements towards an even stronger future together.
H.E. Mr. Don Pramudwinai
Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs of the Kingdom of Thailand
