Cambodia and Vietnam signed seven documents yesterday, to further boost bilateral relations and cooperation, a Cambodian official said.

Cambodian Prime Minister, Samdech Techo Hun Sen, and visiting Vietnamese President, Nguyen Xuan Phuc, presided over the signing ceremony after their meeting at the Peace Palace in Phnom Penh.

The signed documents focused on continued cooperation in security, national defence, justice, border demarcation, economics, trade, education, culture, science and technology, between the two ASEAN member states, said Eang Sophalleth, an assistant to the Cambodian prime minister.

Before the signing ceremony, the two leaders held talks, vowing to further promote bilateral cooperation in various fields, for mutual benefit, he said.

“The two leaders were satisfied with their bilateral cooperation in economics, trade and investment, and agreed to push for the implementation of the investment protection agreement and the avoidance of double taxation agreement,” Sophalleth told reporters.

“They also agreed to further strengthen cooperation in national defence, health, education and justice,” he said.

The Vietnamese president arrived in Cambodia yesterday, for a two-day visit, at the invitation of Cambodian King, Norodom Sihamoni
