Hu's visit to open new chapter in Sino-Cambodian ties


08:06, March 31, 2012

PHNOM PENH, March 30 (Xinhua) -- Chinese President Hu Jintao began a four-day state visit to Cambodia on Friday at the invitation of Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni. The visit is seen as a milestone in bilateral relations.

Leaders of China and Cambodia had forged deep friendships between them even before the two countries established diplomatic ties in 1958.

Over the years, China has been actively advocating the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, and it was on this basis that the friendly relationship between the two countries has been built up, and it has withstood the test of time.

In the second half of the 20th century, Cambodia suffered poverty and was economically backward. As a close neighbor, China made enormous efforts to help Cambodia in restoring peace and regaining independence as well as in its reconstruction and economic development.

In the 21st century, bilateral relations have shown a good momentum of development, marked by increased high-level contacts and exchanges.

In April 2006, when Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao visited Cambodia, the two sides issued a Joint Communique establishing a "comprehensive partnership of cooperation."

In December 2010, Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen held talks with Wen in Beijing and the two sides agreed to upgrade their relationship to a "comprehensive strategic partnership of cooperation."
