Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen has shared his views regarding the Cambodia-Russia relations as the two countries are celebrating the 65th anniversary of friendship and bilateral relations.
In his remarks at the 4th virtual ASEAN-Russia Summit this afternoon, Samdech Techo Hun Sen said in terms of political-security cooperation, Cambodia welcomes Russia’s commitment to fighting against terrorism and transnational crimes, particularly in the ICT and cybersecurity areas. Cambodia would like to request Russia to provide further assistance, including necessary equipment to combat organised crimes, he added.
Cambodia would like to seek Russia’s assistance to help further advance the negotiation for the Cambodia-Eurasian Economic Union Free Trade Agreement (FTA), said the Premier, continuing that Cambodia would also like to express its gratitude to Russia for supporting Cambodia’s human-capacity building, and request that Russia consider exploring more opportunities for Cambodian specialists to continue their studies and participate in training courses, especially in the fields of science and technology.
“As a dialogue partner of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation (SCO), Cambodia attaches high importance to strengthening ASEAN-SCO Relations and supports Russia’s interest to enhance this relationship to a new height. In line with this, we intend to look into the possibility of inviting the SCO Chair as the guest of ASEAN to attend the 41st ASEAN Summit under Cambodia’s ASEAN Chairmanship in 2022,” underlined Samdech Techo Prime Minister.
