In a joint statement released after the visiting of Indonesian President Susilo Bamgang Yudhoyono, Cambodia and Indonesia said that they will continue their close cooperation in ASEAN, the Non- Alignment Movement, Asia Cooperation Dialogue, and the Asia-Europe Meeting.
Susilo arrived here on Tuesday afternoon to pay a two-day state visit at the invitation of Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni.
