Hun Sen Visits Hanoi With Plans for Increased Cooperation

Prime Minister Hun Sen arrived in Hanoi on Tuesday for a two-day official visit with plans to sign a raft of new treaties with his longtime ally, according to a post on his Facebook page.

The visit will include meetings with Vietnamese Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc and Vietnamese National Assembly Chairwoman Nguyen Thi Kim Ngan, as well as the signing of treaties related to the transfer of prisoners, mutual legal assistance in criminal cases and increased cooperation between Cambodia’s Ministry of Cults and Religion and Vietnamese counterparts, according to the post.

Mr. Hun Sen was greeted by senior Vietnamese leaders as well as Cambodian students studying in Vietnam, and paid respects to sacrifices made by Vietnamese soldiers.

Spokesmen for the Foreign Affairs Ministry and the Justice Ministry could not be reached for comment on the visit.

Mr. Hun Sen made no mention of the ongoing border dispute between the two countries.

Both nations agreed last month to ask for French assistance in drafting a new map of the area to help with demarcation.
