Sar Kheng in Laos for meetings

Minister of Interior Sar Kheng led a high-level ministerial delegation on a three-day visit in Laos on Wednesday, a ministry press release said.

During the visit, Sar Kheng will co-chair a meeting with the Ministry of Public Security of Laos to review and evaluate the results of their bilateral cooperation last year and sign the minutes of the cooperation this year.

The meeting is focused on implementing the annual bilateral cooperation mechanism aimed at further enhancing relations and development cooperation between the bordering provinces of the two countries.

Sar Kheng will also meet with Lao Prime Minister Thongloun Sisoulith.

The bilateral cooperation between the two ministries in the past has brought peace and several developments to improve the livelihood of the people of both countries living in the provinces bordering Cambodia and Laos.

Khin Phea, the director-general of the Royal Academy of Cambodia’s International Relations Institute, said strengthening security cooperation between the countries will bring peace and development to the people and the nation.

“We are optimistic and confident that key meetings and talks during the visit will bring strong solidarity, especially in strengthening bilateral cooperation in terms of maintaining security,” he said.

Phea noted many transnational offences and crimes, especially those related to drug offences, have been combated by police forces of both countries.
