Cambodia-Viet Nam friendship organisations to come back
Cambodia will re-establish Cambodia-Viet Nam friendship organisations in all of its provinces and cities, said an official from the United Front for National Construction and Defence of Cambodia (UFCDK).
The news was delivered at a meeting in Phnom Penh on August 7 between the UFCDK Vice President Min Khin and Tran Thanh Long, Vice President of the Viet Nam Fatherland Front (VFF) and President of the VFF’s Ho Chi Minh City chapter.
Min Khin said the one-year-old UFCDK has established its chapters in all 24 provinces and cities in the country.
Recently, the UFCDK’s branches in localities sharing borders with Viet Nam such as Kratie, Mondonkiri, Kongpong Cham provinces have built close relations with VFF chapters in neighbouring Vietnamese provinces.
The two officials agreed to intensify the cooperation between the UFCOK and the VFF in the future.
Visiting Cambodia from August 4-7, Long and his delegation also met with the Overseas Vietnamese Association in Cambodia, and handed over financing from the HCM City VFF branch to be used to build five houses for disadvantaged Vietnamese residing in Cambodia.-(VNA)
