Regarding the relationship between Vietnam and Cambodia, Consul General Le Tuan Khanh said that the bilateral political relationship was developing in depth. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, visits of all levels between the two sides could not be carried out, however, dialogues through phone calls were still held regularly, making a practical contribution to the construction and development of each country.
In particular, the two sides have ratified and released the set of border maps and legal documents recognizing the results of land border demarcation. This is a fundamental legal basis for the people of the two countries to jointly build a border of peace, friendship for cooperation, and sustainable development.
Regarding economic, cultural, and educational cooperation, although there are certain difficulties, in 2020, trade exchange between the two countries will reach 5.3 billion USD.
