16:42, November 27, 2012

PHNOM PENH, Nov. 27 (Xinhua) -- The Cambodian Red Cross (CRC) and the Red Cross Society of China (RCSC) on Tuesday pledged to further enhance bilateral relations and cooperation in humanitarian activities.

The pledge was made during a meeting between Annie Sok An, CRC' s first Vice President, and Hua Jianmin, RCSC's president and Vice Chairman of the Standing Committee of the National People's Congress.

Hua said his first visit to Cambodia was to strengthen and expand cooperation between the two humanitarian agencies.

He said the RCSC decided to donate humanitarian aid worth 200, 000 U.S. dollars to the CRC for humanitarian activities and the aid will be delivered later.

Hua also highly spoke of long-standing relations between China and Cambodia, and thanked Cambodia for its staunch support for China on issues related to China's core interests.

Annie Sok An said Hua's visit would further promote bilateral ties between the two humanitarian bodies.

She said the CRC and the RCSC have offered mutual assistance in natural disasters.

"On behalf of the Cambodian Red Cross and Cambodian people, I' d like to express my gratitude to the RCSC for its humanitarian assistance to Cambodia during difficult times such as storm or flood disasters," said Annie, who is wife of Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Sok An.

She also reiterated that Cambodia fully supports one-China policy and the stance would never change.

Hua arrived here on Monday for a four-day visit during which he will also pay tribute to late King Father Norodom Sihanouk at the Royal Palace.
