PHNOM PENH, April 30 (Xinhua) -- President of Cambodia's National Assembly Heng Samrin on Tuesday spoke highly of good relations and cooperation between Cambodia and China, and expressed his gratitude to China for assisting his country in all circumstances.

"China has been playing a very important role in Cambodia. Our two countries have built good relationship in all fields including politics, economics, education, culture, health and defense," he said during a meeting with outgoing Chinese Ambassador to Cambodia Pan Guangxue.

He said in the last 10 years, China was the largest aid provider to Cambodia for the construction of roads and bridges.

"On behalf of Cambodian people, I'd like to express my sincere and heartfelt thanks to the government and people of China for supporting Cambodia in all stages including the stages of national liberation, reconciliation and development," Heng Samrin said.

He also noted that the visit of Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen to China early this month was a new testament to both sides' high commitment to further strengthening and expanding the bilateral ties and cooperation.

Meanwhile, he lauded Ambassador Pan for his strong efforts in helping promote friendship relations, solidarity, and cooperation between the governments and peoples of the two countries.

Pan said the year 2013 marks the 55th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations between China and Cambodia and the "China-Cambodia Friendship Year".

Chinese Embassy to Cambodia would organize an event to celebrate the anniversary in June, the ambassador said, extending an invitation to Heng Samrin to attend the ceremony.

Heng Samrin said he would join the event.
