A group of Chinese legislators led by Hu Kangsheng, chairman of the Legal Affairs Committee of the China's National People's Congress, is visiting Cambodia to strengthen and expand bilateral ties.

The delegation met with President of Cambodia's National Assembly Heng Samrin on Monday. Speaking at the meeting, Hu highly spoke of China-Cambodia relations, saying that the two countries are good neighbors, good friends and honest partners.

He added that the visit was to discuss and exchange experiences with Cambodian legislators on legal affairs and to further promote the traditional and long-standing friendship relations between the two countries.

He also conveyed greetings from Chinese top legislator Wu Bangguo to Heng Samrin, and expressed his condolences over the passing away of Cambodian former King Norodom Sihanouk.

Hu thanked Cambodia for its staunch support for China on issues related to China's core interests.

Meanwhile, Heng Samrin said that Hu's visit would provide greater possibility for the two countries to strengthen and expand friendship relations and historic solidarity.

"Cambodia undoubtedly supports one China policy and the stance will be never changed," he said.

Later in the day, Hu held a meeting with Pen Panha, chairman of Cambodia's national assembly's legislation and justice commission.

Hu and his delegation arrived here on Saturday for a 3-day visit. During the stay, they also visited Angkor Wat temple, a world heritage site, in Cambodia's northwestern Siem Reap province.
