The Senate president also expressed his sincere appreciation for all the help and support of Vietnam in Cambodia’s mission for unification and independence as well as national development.

Cambodia considers its friendship with Vietnam to be unbreakable and pledged to preserve and foster the traditional ties and comprehensive partnership between the two nations, the news agency quoted President Chhum as saying.

The Cambodian Senate leader spoke of the results of his talk with Chairman of the Vietnamese National Assembly Nguyen Sinh Hung and asserted that the upper house will continue to implement the agreements signed between the two parties.

General Secretary of the Communist Party of Vietnam Nguyen Phu Trong believes that Cambodia will achieve more on its development path under the righteous leadership of King Norodom Sihamoni, the Cambodian Senate, Parliament and the government.

He also urged the legislative bodies of the two countries to continue their cooperation and exchange of knowledge.

Vietnam has always considered the enhancement of ties with Cambodia one of its top priorities to ensure the interests and prosperity of both peoples, General Secretary Trong said.
