Since Vietnam joined UN peacekeeping activities, Cambodia has always shown its goodwill, actively supported and shared experience to help Vietnam build and improve the ability of its UN peacekeeping forces, especially the sappers, Phung said.

For his part, Sem Sovanny expressed his hope that the two sides will continue to enhance experience sharing in the fields of strength of Cambodia such as deploying military police team and maintaining the rate of female soldiers in peacekeeping forces.

Phung said he wishes the two sides will expand cooperation activities in the field, including exchange of soldiers attending intensive training courses on peacekeeping organized by Vietnam, Cambodia or a third country; and bilateral and multilateral cooperation and experience sharing on peacekeeping operations in UN peacekeeping missions.
