Vietnam, Cambodia seek to strengthen defense ties

Defense Minister General Ngo Xuan Lich hosted a reception in Hanoi on Tuesday for General Vong Pisen, General Commander of the Cambodian Royal Armed Forces who is on a 3-day official visit to Vietnam from Monday.

Minister Lich lauded the achievements that the Cambodian people and Royal Armed Forces have made, expressing his belief that General Vong Pisen's visit would help reinforce and strengthen the friendship, solidarity and comprehensive and sustainable cooperation traditionally enjoyed between the two countries and their armies as well.
