Cambodian, Vietnamese PMs vow to deepen ties, cooperation

PHNOM PENH, Nov. 25 (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen met with his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Tan Dung and the two leaders vowed to further enhance relations and cooperation for mutual benefits, a senior Cambodian official said Tuesday.

The two primer ministers met Monday afternoon on the sidelines of the 8th CLV (Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam) Summit in Vientiane, the capital city of Laos.

"Both sides discussed ways to further promote trade and investment," Kao Kim Hourn, minister attached to Prime Minister Hun Sen, told a press conference at Phnom Penh International Airport while Hun Sen returned from the summit.

He said the two-way trade between the two neighbors was valued at 2.5 billion U.S. dollars in the first nine months of this year and both leaders reiterated their commitment to boost the trade volume to 5 billion U.S. dollars by 2015.

For the investment side, Dung said there have been 134 Vietnamese investment projects in Cambodia with the capital of 1.4 billion U.S. dollars, and asked the Cambodian government to continue supporting those Vietnamese companies.

According to Kao Kim Hourn, to further enhance bilateral ties, Vietnamese State President Truong Tan Sang will visit Cambodia from Dec. 22 to 24 as Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni will visit Vietnam in January next year.

Both leaders also discussed the issue of Vietnamese immigrants in Cambodia, border demarcation process, and connectivity.

Cambodia's National Police said last month that Cambodia has deported at least 344 illegal Vietnamese immigrants back to their country in the last six months of this year.
