PM wants better relations with neighbours

Prime Minister Hun Sen called for improved relations between Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam during sideline discussions with high-ranking officials from the three countries at a meeting in Phnom Penh yesterday.

Hun Sen’s personal spokesman, Eng Sophalleth, said the premier had spoken with Huynh Dam, president of the Vietnamese Fatherland Front delegation, and Phan Douangchit Vongsa, president of the Lao Front for National Construction, during a meeting between the three countries at the Hotel Cambodiana.

“Prime Minister Hun Sen appealed to the leaders for the three countries to boost trilateral co-operation in trade, economic and social development,” Eng Sophalleth said, adding that there had been no detailed discussions on specific projects.

Hun Sen’s appeal was reiterated in a memo of co-operation by the three countries that came out of the meeting.

“The three parties have committed to extend the tradition of positive joint co-operation,” the memo states.

National Assembly president Heng Samrin highlighted the border demarcation issue between Vietnam and Cambodia, saying that it had made much progress recently and was nearly resolved.

Huynh Dam and Phan Douangchit Vongsa said the three countries had many things in common.
