Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen said Wednesday the meeting with his Thai counterpart Abhisit Vejjajiva in New York last weekend proved to be a "fruitful one".

Delivering speech to graduate students in Phnom Penh, Hun Sen said the meeting had "built confidence and trust and cooperation" between the two countries.

He said that during the 40-minute talks in New York, there were many issues on common bilateral cooperation between the two countries, not only on border issue alone.

He said the relation between the two nations is important, adding that no any single country wishes to stage war, but to live in peace.

Hun Sen said that his country is now improving relations with the three neighboring countries of Vietnam, Laos and Thailand with an ultimate aim to establish special economic zones along the borders with these nations.

Soon after returning from New York on Sunday, Prak Sokhon, secretary of state of the Office of the Council of Ministers and the minister attached to the prime minister, told reporters that the 40-minute meeting between the two leaders had discussed four particular topics.

According to Prak Sokhon, one of the four topics was on the assurance to avoid military confrontation between the two countries.
