He stressed that Cuban and Cambodian legislative bodies can contribute to strengthen bilateral ties, with the promotion of common goals in health, sports and education sectors.

He thanked the invariable position of Cambodia in international organizations against the US blockade, as well as the donation of two thousand tons of rice.

The president of the legislative body reiterated Cuba’s interest and willingness to join the Parliamentary Assembly of the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) as an Observer.

He also sent greetings to the President of the Cambodian National Assembly, Heng Samrin, and to the head of the Senate, Say Chhum.

‘We want economic-commercial and cooperation ties to reach the same level as our political ties. We highly value your visit to Cuba, which will contribute to further strengthen solidarity, unity and strong support between both nations’, he concluded.

For his part, Samdech Techo Hun Sen congratulated the Cuban parliament, people and government for the vaccines developed to combat Covid-19, which ‘have not only been used by their people but also by other countries, including some in Asia such as Vietnam’.

The prime minister thanked the reception offered and recognized the efforts and achievements of the Caribbean nation, in the face of the intensification of the economic, commercial and financial blockade of the United States.

In this regard, he noted that the Cambodian Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation issued a statement requesting the end of the hostile policy.
