NDO - A delegation from the Vietnamese embassy and overseas Vietnamese in Cambodia offered incense to fallen soldiers at the Vietnam - Cambodia Friendship Monument in Phnom Penh on December 21.

The event was part of activities to mark the 31st anniversary of Vietnam’s All People’s Defence Festival and the 76th anniversary of the Vietnam People’s Army (December 22).

Representatives from the Royal Cambodian Army led by Defence Ministry Secretary of State Gen. El Van Sarat also attended.

The delegates paid tribute to voluntary Vietnamese soldiers who laid down their lives in Cambodia during the war.

Over recent years, the Governments of the two countries have coordinated to search for and repatriate the remains of fallen Vietnamese soldiers.

Earlier, on December 18 and 19, the Vietnamese Consulates General in Preah Sihanouk and Battambang provinces also held incense offering ceremonies to pay respect to Vietnamese soldiers who sacrificed their lives in Cambodia.
