Get-together marks the victory of southwestern border defense

A get-together was held on Thursday to mark the 38th anniversary of the triumph of the southwestern border defense and the joint victory by Vietnam and Cambodia in defeating the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime.

Cambodian Consul General in Ho Chi Minh City, Im Hen, said the anniversary is a chance for the Cambodian people to express their deep gratitude to Vietnam's volunteer soldiers for helping them to defeat the brutal regime.

He thanked the Vietnamese Party and Government and Ho Chi Minh City for supporting Cambodia in its difficult times and in the current period of national development.

The get-together was a curtain raiser to 20 events to be held by the Vietnam-Cambodia Friendship Association in Ho Chi Minh City in 2017 to mark the 50th anniversary of Vietnamese-Cambodian diplomatic relations.
