NDO – On November 5, Deputy Foreign Minister Nguyen Quoc Dung led a delegation of the Foreign Ministry to the Embassy of Cambodia in Hanoi to extend their congratulations on the occasion of the 66th National Day of Cambodia (November 9, 1953-2019).

Speaking at the meeting with Cambodian Ambassador Chay Navuth, who has just began his tenure in Vietnam, on behalf of leaders of the Foreign Ministry, Deputy FM Nguyen Quoc Dung said Vietnam has rejoiced at the achievements that Cambodia has made over the past 66 years, particularly its impressive economic growth rate in recent years.

He also spoke highly of the Vietnam-Cambodia ties, which are making firm progress, with regular exchange of high-level visits and contacts.

The official visit by Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen to Vietnam on October 4-5, 2019, was an event of historical significance during which the two countries signed two treaties recognizing the completion of 84% of the workload in border demarcation and border marker planting along their land border line.

For his part, Ambassador Chay Navuth informed his guest that the National Assembly of Cambodia approved the two treaties on November 4.

Expressing his thanks to the Foreign Ministry of Vietnam, the Ambassador pledged to do his best during his tenure to promote the comprehensive and substantial development of the bilateral ties.

He also took the occasion to affirm Cambodia’s support for Vietnam as Chair of the ASEAN in 2020 and a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council for the 2020-2021 tenure.
