PHNOM PENH, July 31 (Xinhua) -- The 86th anniversary of the founding of the Chinese People's Liberation Army (PLA) was celebrated in the Cambodian capital on Wednesday by about 300 Chinese and Cambodian military officers as well as foreign diplomats.

The event, organized by Chinese Embassy in Cambodia, was attended by Cambodian Secretary of State of Defense Ministry Gen. Moeung Samphan, Commander-in-Chief of the Royal Cambodian Armed Forces Gen. Pol Saroeun, and Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Bu Jianguo.

Speaking at the event, Wang Ximao, military attache of Chinese Embassy, said August 1, 2013 will be the 86th anniversary of the PLA.

In the past 86 years, under the leadership of the Communist Party of China, the PLA has achieved great feats in building modern and capable armed forces to defend national sovereignty, territorial integrity, and the people of China, he said.

He said the PLA has forged friendship relations and cooperation with most countries in the world.

The year 2013 marks the 55th anniversary of the establishment of China-Cambodia diplomatic relations and the Cambodia-China Year of Friendship.

Wang said that a Medical Navy Ship of the PLA will make a goodwill visit to Cambodia's Sihanoukville port in late September in order to further enhance the friendship ties between the armed forces of the two countries.
