Cambodian deputy PM lauds good ties with China

July 31, 2013
Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Defense Minister Tea Banh on Tuesday hailed good friendship relations and cooperation with China in all fields and believed that the ties would be further enhanced for mutual benefits.

"I am very satisfied with Cambodia-China friendship relations and believe that our ties will grow stronger from day to day," Tea Banh said during a meeting with newly-designated Ambassador of China to Cambodia Bu Jianguo.

The two countries have very good ties in all rounds of cooperation, particularly politics, economics and military, he said.

The minister also thanked China for providing a great amount of aid to Cambodia for social and economic development.

Meanwhile, he told Bu that Cambodia had successfully organized a general election on Sunday and according to the initial results, the ruling Cambodian People's Party (CPP) of Prime Minister Hun Sen got the victory.

Bu expressed congratulations to the CPP for its victory in the election and said she observed that the election process was conducted smoothly and peacefully.

The Ambassador said her diplomatic mission to Cambodia was made in the year that Cambodia and China have been celebrating the 55th anniversary of the establishment of the diplomatic relations and the Cambodia-China Year of Friendship.

She vowed to further strengthen and expand cooperation in all fields between the two countries for mutual benefits.

Cambodia-China ties reached top level of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Cooperation in December 2010, and during the visit of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen to China in April this year, the two nations agreed to set up an inter-governmental coordination committee to jointly implement the Action Plan on the Implementation of the Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Cooperation.

Bu succeeded ex-Ambassador Pan Guangxue, whose three-year diplomatic mission in Cambodia came to an end last month.

She presented her credentials to His Majesty Norodom Sihamoni, the King of Cambodia, on July 19.
