He said he believes the bilateral friendship will see continuous development through the two sides' joint efforts.

Upon arriving at the embassy, both Chinese leaders were silent and bowed three times in front of Sihanouk's portrait.

They each signed the book of condolences.

Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of the Royal Palace Kong Sam Ol and Cambodian Ambassador Khek Caimealy Sysoda expressed gratitude for the condolences.

Born on Oct. 31, 1922, Norodom Sihanouk reigned from 1941 to 1955 and again from 1993 until his voluntary abdication on Oct. 7, 2004 in favor of his son, the current King Sihamoni. He died of illness at the age of 90 early Monday morning.
