Thailand Committed to Continue Bilateral Collaboration with Cambodia

Thailand is committed to continue fostering the bilateral collaboration with Cambodia, especially the relations between the two countries’ National Assemblies.

The commitment was made by H.E. Cherdkiat Atthakor, newly appointed Ambassador of the Kingdom of Thailand to Cambodia while paying a courtesy call on Cambodian National Assembly (NA) President, Samdech Akka Moha Ponhea Chakrei Heng Samrin, here in Phnom Penh this morning.

H.E. Cherdkiat Atthakor spoke highly of Cambodia’s robust economic growth and congratulated Cambodia on the successful hosting of the ASEAN Summits and Related Summits and the ASEAN Inter-Parliamentary Assembly (AIPA) General Assembly.

Samdech Heng Samrin expressed warm welcome to H.E. Cherdkiat Atthakor as the new Thai Ambassador to Cambodia, hoping that through his diplomatic mission, the friendship tie, solidarity and cooperation between both neighbouring Kingdoms will further advance.

Cambodia and Thailand have tied their diplomatic relations for over 73 years, said the NA president, adding that the bilateral relations and cooperation continued to be fostered by the two countries’ leaders.

Both NAs have cooperated and supported each other at inter-parliamentary forums as well as in regional and global frameworks, noted Samdech Heng Samrin.

He also appreciated the advanced traditional friendship, solidarity and cooperation between the two nations in all sectors, especially in politics, diplomacy, economy, trade, investment, culture, tourism and beyond.

Cambodia and Thailand have set to increase their two-way trade volume to US$15 billion by 2025.
