Culture from Russia

Cambodia and Russia signed an agreement on November 14 to enhance cultural exchange

and cooperation at the Ministry of Culture and Fine Arts. The agreement aims to bring

much-admired elements of Russian culture to Cambodia, said Heom Chem, Acting Minister

of Culture and Fine Arts.

"Cambodia admires the Russian Circus very much," he said, adding that Russia

would be asked to help train such professionals for Cambodia.

Valery Tereschenko, Russian Ambassador to Cambodia, said improving cultural ties

could improve overall prosperity in both countries. Russia also plans to send teachers

to Cambodian schools, he said.
