NDO/VNA – The Vietnamese Embassy and representatives of the Vietnamese people in Cambodia paid homage to the Vietnamese soldiers who died in the country, at the Cambodia-Vietnam Friendship Monument in Phnom Penh, on July 26.

The activity marks 70 years of Vietnam’s War Invalids and Martyrs Day (July 27, 1947).

At the ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador Thach Du and other participants observed a minutes silence in honour of the Vietnamese soldiers who died in Cambodia in various wars.

The soldiers’ sacrifice helped the Cambodian people escape from the genocidal Khmer Rouge regime and rebuild the country, reinforcing friendship between the two countries.

Another Cambodia-Vietnam Friendship Monument is scheduled to be inaugurated in Cambodia’s Battambang province on July 27.

There are 17 Cambodia-Vietnam Friendship Monuments across Cambodia at present.
