Senior Lieutenant General Pham Ngoc Minh presents souvenir to the guest. 
At the reception, the guest held that his visit to Vietnam cements the Protocol on Regular SAR in land border areas between the two defense ministries during the official visit of Party General Secretary Nguyen Phu Trong to Cambodia in July 2017.

The Cambodian general informed General Minh on outcomes of his previous meeting with the SAR Department of the General Staff of the Vietnam People’s Army, and emphasized that Cambodia wants to learn from Vietnam’s SAR experiences and boost bilateral cooperation on this field.

In turn, General Minh highly valued the outcomes of the two sides’ meeting and suggested that they both continue to carry out the agreed protocol, including focusing on information exchanges on disasters and incidents on their shared border; setting relevant forces and equipment on standby to perform SAR missions on border if required, building up detailed cooperation plans at all levels and further discussing joint SAR exercises.
