Viet Nam continues to regard its long-lasting friendship with Cambodia as an invaluable asset, Nguyen Sinh Hung, Deputy Prime Minister told his Cambodian counterpart, Men Sam An who is also President of the Cambodia-Viet Nam parliamentary group in the capital city yesterday.
Hung reiterated Viet Nam's consistent policy to strengthen its comprehensive relations with Cambodia on the basis of the interest of the people of the two nations, for peace and stability in the region and the world.
"Viet Nam and Cambodia should be pro-active in developing a co-operation programme between the two governments in the 2015-20 period as soon as possible while optimising successes in bilateral economic and trade co-operation programmes," said Hung.
The Deputy Prime Minister also expressed his wish to see an early completion of the planting of border posts along the Viet Nam-Cambodia border.

Men Sam An thanked Viet Nam for its support in Cambodia's wars of national salvation and its current cause of national development.
