NDO/VNA – Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam received Cambodian Minister of Information Khieu Kanharith in Hanoi, on December 22.

At the reception, Deputy PM Dam noted with pleasure the growing friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries, saying that the two sides have held regular exchanges and supported each other in bilateral frameworks, as well as regional and international forums.

Celebrations for the 50th anniversary of their bilateral diplomatic ties (June 24) this year afforded both sides a chance to raise public awareness, especially among the younger generations, of the traditional friendship and solidarity between the two countries.

Appreciating the cooperation between Radio the Voice of Vietnam (VOV) and the Cambodian Ministry of Information and the National Voice of Cambodia, the Deputy PM said that the VOV assisted Cambodia in installing radio and television stations and improving the capacity of radio and television programme production within the framework of the inter-governmental cooperation agreement.

The host suggested that both sides continue increasing their coverage in both the Vietnamese and Cambodian languages and add more cultural and artistic programmes featuring the two countries and their people in order to raise mutual understanding.

On the occasion, he wished that Cambodia would reap greater achievements in their process of national construction and successfully hold the Senate and National Assembly elections next year.

Kanharith, for his part, thanked the Vietnamese Government and VOV in particular for their support and informed the host with delight that the VOV and the National Voice of Cambodia signed a cooperation agreement on December 21.
