NDO/VNA - A high-ranking delegation of the Cambodian National Assembly, led by the body’s President Samdech Heng Samrin, starts an official visit to Vietnam on May 28.

The three-day visit is made at the invitation of Vietnamese NA Chairman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan.

Vietnam and Cambodia established diplomatic relations on June 24, 1967. The two neighbouring countries stood side by side during past struggles against colonialists and the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime, and have supported each other in national construction and defence.

Bilateral economic and trade ties have made big strides. With 210 projects valued at more than US$3 billion, Vietnam has become one of the five biggest investors in Cambodia.

Meanwhile, Cambodia is running 19 projects worth US$63.42 million in Vietnam, focusing on agriculture, forestry, fishery and commerce.
