Cambodia, Korea to Further Strengthen Bilateral Cooperation

The Kingdom of Cambodia and the Republic of Korea have exchanged appreciation of blossoming bilateral cooperation, including between the two countries' armies.

The note was made during a meeting on July 28 in Phnom Penh between Lt. Gen. Hun Manet, Deputy Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces (RCAF) and Commander of the Royal Cambodian Army and H.E. Park Heung Kyeong, Korean Ambassador to Cambodia.

Lt. Gen. Hun Manet underlined the need to sustain the good relations, especially in military for national and regional peace.

The deputy commander-in-chief hoped that with the support of the Korean Embassy and the Office of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in Cambodia, the two countries' armies will be able to enhance direct communication and coordination.

H.E. Park Heung Kyeong spoke highly of the effort of Prime Minister Samdech Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen in re-establishing official diplomatic ties between the two countries in 1997, following the fall of Khmer Rouge regime.

The cooperation between the two countries over the past 25 years has developed in all fields, including trade, investment, education, military, demining and health, underlined H.E. Park Heung Kyeong.
