Vice-Chairperson of the National People’s Congress Standing Committee of China, Zhang Chunxian, affirmed that Prime Minister Hun Sen is admired and supported by the Chinese people.
The two met at the Peace Palace on November 2, and after their meeting the minister attached to Hun Sen, Sry Thamrong, told reporters that Mr Zhang said that the Chinese people admire the premier and express their gratitude for him supporting China in regional and global issues.
“… even though some western countries expressed a different opinion, over 15 million Chinese people support Samdech, know Samdech’s name and know clearly about Samdech.”
Mr Zhang intends to ask the Chinese leaders to expand Chinese markets to Cambodian products.
He recommended that Cambodia should find more markets in Japan and Russia because the products of Cambodia, especially the agricultural ones, are of high quality.
The premier said that his government is proud to help strengthen the bond between both countries and thanked China for the aid it provides to help Cambodia reinforce its independence.
