Deputy Minister of Defence Sen. Lieut. Gen. Nguyen Van Duoc on January 19 attended the inauguration ceremony of the Cambodian Guard Forces’ Headquarters, which was built with assistance from Vietnam.
At the event, Cambodia Defence Minister Tea Banh thanked the Vietnamese army and people for providing practical assistance to Cambodia.
He said that both countries have built a long-lasting friendship, which was specially demonstrated in the 1970s and 1980s when Vietnam helped Cambodia drive away the Pol Pot genocidal regime.
In his speech, Deputy Minister Duoc affirmed that Vietnam and Cambodia have stood shoulder to shoulder to overcome numerous difficulties and win victories.
This relationship has developed constantly and become a valuable asset of the two nations, said Mr Duoc, adding that solidarity and cooperation is a decisive factor behind the victory of the struggle for national liberation of each nation.
The headquarters of the Cambodian Guard Forces covers 10 hectares in capital Phnom Penh.
