The year of 2008 not only marks the 50th anniversary of the establishment of the Sino-Cambodian diplomatic relations, but also is celebrated as the Year of China-Cambodia Friendship.
China was willing to take the opportunity to work with Cambodia to enhance the exchanges and cooperation between the two countries so as to lift the China-Cambodia relations to a new stage, said Wen.
China would continue to support the economic development of Cambodia and to promote the key cooperation projects, especially in the infrastructure facilities construction on transportation and communication, he said.
On the Friendship Year, Hun Sen said the related celebrations cemented the traditional friendship of the two peoples and the Cambodian people appreciated China’s long-term aid.
Cambodia hoped China will continue to support its economic development and further cooperation in water resources projects and infrastructure facilities construction, he said.
The Cambodian Prime Minister arrived in Beijing on Thursday afternoon to attend the two-day seventh Asia-Europe Meeting starting from Friday.
