Lauding growing bilateral relations between the nations across all fields in the past time, the Cambodian leader said the two countries' infrastructure has been smoothly connected in this border area and they agreed to build it into a symbol of their relations via promoting bilateral cooperation in trade, investment, tourism, and culture.

PM Hun Sen said he believed that the Cambodia-Vietnam ties will be sustainable forever.

On June 20, 1977, after crossing the Cambodia - Vietnam border and arriving in Binh Phuoc, Hun Sen, who was then a lieutenant colonel of Region 21 in eastern Cambodia, and his comrades decided to seek help from Vietnam to overthrow the Pol Pot genocidal regime to regain peace for his homeland.

Thanks to the Vietnamese Party, State, and people’s assistance, they took gradual steps to set up the Kampuchean United Front for National Salvation and, together with Vietnamese volunteer soldiers, completely defeat the genocidal regime on January 7, 1979, saving millions of Cambodians from the genocidal disaster.
