The two sides have so far completed 84 percent of the workload in this field.   

The Vietnamese top legislator made the request at her meeting with President of the Cambodian National Assembly Samdech Heng Samrin in Siem Reap, Cambodia on January 15 on the sidelines of the ongoing 27th Annual Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF-27). 

Ngan praised the Cambodian side for its preparation for APPF-27, saying that she is delighted at the fruitful and comprehensive development of the bilateral relations across fields, especially after Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen’s visit to Vietnam in December last year. 

Sharing Vietnam’s efforts in renovating the NA’s activities, Chairwoman Ngan hoped the legislative bodies of Vietnam and Cambodia will maintain exchange of delegations and learn experience from each other. 

She expressed her hope that the Cambodian National Assembly will continue to assist the Vietnamese community in settling down in Cambodia, and facilitate business and investment operations of Vietnamese enterprises in the nation, thus contributing to Cambodia’s socio-economic development as well as the bilateral relations. 

For his part, Heng Samrin spoke highly of the outcomes of the APPF-26 held in Vietnam in 2018, and experience shared by the Vietnamese NA in organising the event.

He congratulated Vietnam on great achievements in the national construction and development made by the Party, State and people. 

The two countries have closely cooperated at multilateral and bilateral forums in recent time, he said, noting that the two NAs have created many cooperative mechanisms and promoted the exchange of delegations at all levels. 

The Cambodian NA President thanked the Vietnamese NA for helping his country train human resources in the information and technical fields, as well as for the funding of the NA House project in Cambodia. 

Through NA Chairwoman Ngan, Heng Samrin extended New Year greetings to leaders of the Vietnamese Party, State and people, and said he will visit Vietnam at a suitable time to discuss specific measures to strengthen the traditional friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.

Chairwoman of the National Assembly Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan met with President of the Cambodian Senate Samdech Say Chhum in Siem Reap, Cambodia, on January 15 on the sidelines of the 27th Annual Meeting of the Asia-Pacific Parliamentary Forum (APPF-27). 

The Vietnamese top legislator appreciated Cambodia’s preparation for the APPF-27, and expressed her joy at the strong growth of Cambodia. 

She highlighted activities held by Vietnam in early January to mark the 40th anniversary of Vietnam’s victory in the southwest border defence war and the joint victory of Vietnam and Cambodia over the genocidal Pol Pot regime. Cambodia also organized various events and a grand ceremony to mark the victory over the genocidal Pol Pot regime.

The anniversary offered an occasion for the two countries to spread the truth about a period of history in which the two nations fought side by side, thus making the people, especially the young generation, realise their responsibility for preserving this valuable treasure for later generations, NA Chairwoman Ngan said. 

She thanked the Cambodian People’s Party (CPP) and the Cambodian Senate for sending a high-level delegation led by Senate Vice President Tep Ngorn to Vietnam to attend the ceremony to mark the 40th anniversary of Vietnam’s victory in the southwest border defence war and the joint victory of Vietnam and Cambodia over the genocidal Pol Pot regime. The delegation’s presence has brought warm sentiment and solidarity from the Cambodian people to the Vietnamese people and former volunteer soldiers and experts who had served in the international mission in Cambodia, according to Ngan. 

The NA Chairwoman affirmed that Vietnam will do its best together with Cambodia to preserve and develop the “good neighbourliness, traditional friendship, and long-term, sustainable and comprehensive cooperation” between the two countries, not only for the prosperity of each nation but also for the sake of peace, stability, cooperation and development in the region and the world.  

Senate President Say Chhum said the participation of the Vietnamese delegation in the APPF-27 will contribute to the event’s success and promote the traditional friendship and cooperation between the two countries and two parliaments as well as give encouragement to Cambodia. 

He expressed joy about the development of bilateral ties and at the Vietnamese NA leader’s assessment about Cambodia’s socio-economic development. 

Say Chhum thanked the Vietnamese NA for helping the Cambodian parliament organize the APPF-27 and highly valued the speech of great depth delivered by Chairwoman Ngan at the event’s opening ceremony. 

Mentioning the commemoration of the victory over the genocidal Pol Pot regime, he again affirmed that there would not be the Cambodia of today if not for the help of the Party, State and people of Vietnam. 

Say Chhum wished the ties between the parliaments of Vietnam and Cambodia further development, contributing to the friendship and cooperation between the two countries.
