The Vietnamese top government official believed that the Vietnam visit of the Cambodian counterpart is of great significance and the vivid token of the close-knit friendship and solidarity between the two countries that has been tested in both wartime and peacetime. The visit will generate a strong momentum for development of the traditional friendship and comprehensive cooperation between Vietnam and Cambodia, in line with aspirations of the two peoples, contributing to peace, stability and cooperation in the region.
The visit of the Cambodian PM brought a chance for the two peoples to recall the history of the shoulder-to-shoulder solidarity of the two countries during the wars against common enemies as well as in peacetime. PM Phuc stressed that the Vietnam-Cambodia friendship will live forever like the Mekong River connecting the two countries. Under the leadership of the Cambodian People's Party and the Royal Government of Cambodia, the people of Cambodia have earned remarkable achievements in building a Cambodia as a country of peace, stability and development, with an increasingly higher position in the region and the world. PM Phuc wished the country and people of Cambodia to obtain more achievements in the cause of national construction, protection and development.
For his part, Cambodian PM Hun Sen highly appreciated the solidarity and friendship between the two peoples, especially the wholehearted and carefree brotherly supports of the Party, State, Government of Vietnam and the Vietnam People's Army for the people of Cambodia during their struggles for the national liberation and in overthrowing the genocidal regime of Pol Pot, reliving and rebuilding a nation-state that brings happiness to people. PM Hun Sen then recalled the hard times and memories of 40 years ago when he made his way to Vietnam to find the path to save his nation. He thanked the Vietnamese people for helping him and his teammates during those days.
