The trip is of significance as it will further enhance the two countries’ fine relationship in the spirit of “good neighborliness, traditional friendship, comprehensive cooperation, long-term sustainability.”

The article quoted the November 7 press release by the Cambodian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation introducing the schedule of PM Hun Manet's trip, affirming that the official visit will further deepen the long-standing relationship between the two countries and their close cooperation in the fields of politics, security, socio-economy and culture.

According to scholar Uch Leang, through this trip, the traditional Cambodia - Vietnam friendship will continue to be nurtured at the government level, among leaders at all levels and people from all walks of life, especially youths.
