Vietnamese, Cambodian militaries foster ties

 VNA (July 4, 2012)

Vietnam’s Military Zone 5 has gifted Military Zone 1 in Cambodia a new headquarters building and an access road in Stung Streng, 300 km north of Phnom Penh. 

When addressing the inauguration ceremony, General Pol Saroun, Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces, thanked the Vietnamese Government and army for their kind support.
He said the present is a symbol of the friendship and traditional solidarity between the two armies and peoples. In particular, the cooperation shown between Military Zone 5 in Vietnam and Military Zone 1 in Cambodia has significantly helped Zone 1 to ensure the country’s national security and territorial integrity.

The Deputy Commander of Military Zone 5, Major General Nguyen Quy Nhon, thanked the Cambodian Armed Forces, especially Military Zone 1 for their cooperation in maintaining security and order along the shared border.

Over the years, Military Zone 1, which covers Cambodia’s northeastern provinces and shares a border with the Central Highlands region in Vietnam, has built up close relations with Zone 5 and the Central Highlands region of Vietnam, while actively helping to repatriate the remains of Vietnamese martyrs.
