Vietnam and Cambodia signed a protocol and plan for cooperation in exchanges of military groups, repatriating Vietnamese martyr remains, and others between the two countries’ defense ministries in 2015 earlier this week.

The deals were struck by General Phung Quang Thanh, Vietnamese Minister of Defense, and General Tia Banh, Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Defense of Cambodia, during a meeting in Ho Chi Minh City on Friday.

The meeting was part of a two-day working visit of a Cambodian delegation, led by Cambodia’s Cambodian Minister of Defense, to the southern city. The visit wrapped up yesterday.

During the meeting, the two sides re-affirmed their defense cooperation is effective and serves as one of the pillars of their bilateral relations.

Joint patrols in the historic waters of the two countries have helped maintain security and enabled their respective fishermen to make a living.

The two ministers agreed that in 2015 and subsequent years, their military will continue to strengthen bilateral relations in a comprehensive manner, making in-depth cooperation and achieving practical results.

The cooperation will focus on the following areas: exchanges of military groups; staff training; searching for, retrieving, and repatriating Vietnamese martyr remains in Cambodia; coordinating management; and building a border for the sake of peace, friendship, stability, and development.
