Addressing the gathering, President of the city's Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Association Truong Minh Nhut stressed that November 9, 1953 was a historical milestone in Cambodia’s history of national construction and defence.

He highlighted the traditional friendship, fruitful cooperation, solidarity, and mutual support between Vietnam and Cambodia in the past struggles for national liberation as well as present efforts in national construction and development.

He highly appreciated and respectfully acknowledged the effective assistance of HUFO and the city's Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Association in connecting, consolidating, and promoting the friendship between the city's residents and people of Cambodia in general and Phnom Penh in particular.

The Cambodian Consulate General will continue its efforts and cooperate with municipal authorities, departments, and sectors, as well as HUFO to organise people-to-people exchanges, contributing to further developing Cambodia-Vietnam relations in all fields and bringing practical benefits to the people of the two countries, he said.

On the same day, Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan extended their respective greetings to Cambodia’s Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen, President of the Senate Say Chhum, and President of the National Assembly Samdech Heng Samrin on the occasion of the 67th anniversary of the country’s Independence Day.

They expressed their belief that under the leadership of the Senate, National Assembly, and Government of Cambodia, the Cambodian people will continue to reap new and greater success in the cause of building and developing a prosperous country with a rising position in the global arena.

Vietnam treasures and continues to strengthen the close cooperation between the two governments and legislatures to foster the sound neighbourliness, traditional friendship, comprehensive cooperation, and long-term sustainability between Vietnam and Cambodia, thus deepening bilateral cooperation and making it more practical and effective for the benefit of people in both countries and for peace, stability, cooperation, and development in the region and the world, they stated.
