“Cambodia-China friendship is a model of a state-to-state exchange,” Minister Wang Yi said.
Wang Yi recalled the Cambodian spirit of support for China during the hardship in the fight against the pandemic; in particular, the huge support from Cambodian Queen Mother and His Majesty King, and Prime Minister Hun Sen's visit to Beijing at the time of crisis.
His Majesty King Sihamoni congratulated China on fighting against Covid-19 pandemic under the wise leadership of President Xi Jinping. The King also highly valued Chinese philosophy of governance and thanked China for assisting Cambodia in combating Covid-19.
