Addressing the inauguration ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Cambodia Nguyen Huy Tang affirmed that the friendship monument in Svay Rieng province in particular and the total 23 monuments are the Cambodian people’s recognition of the assistance that the Vietnamese people have given to the neighboring country during its struggle to topple the Pol Pot regime as well as its current national construction.

The Vietnamese Ambassador stressed that the works have played an important role in the histories of the two countries, contributing to educating younger generations of both sides about the value of peace and freedom as well as raising their awareness of the traditional Vietnam – Cambodia friendship.
