Vietnam, Cambodia to partner in military legislation

HCM City (VNA) – The defence ministries of Vietnam
and Cambodia have agreed to reinforce cooperation in military and defence
legislation, contributing to the development of the relations between the two
countries’ armed forces.

The two sides decided to draft a Memorandum of
Understanding (MoU) in military and defence legislation during talks between Colonel
Han Manh Thang, head of the legal department at Vietnam’s Ministry of Defence,
and General Mom Sophat, head of the Cambodian Defence Ministry’s legal
department, in Ho Chi Minh City on July 9.

Speaking at the event, Colonel Thang and General Sophat
highly spoke of the preparation of documents for building the MoU, sharing a
view that it is important to facilitating cooperation between the two
ministries in making military and defence laws as well as developing their
defence sector.

Based on the Vietnam – Cambodia protocol on bilateral
defence agreement from 2015-2019, the Vietnamese Ministry of Defence agreed to assist
the Cambodia Defence Ministry in organising training courses for officials in
charge of making military laws, and to offer undergraduate scholarships in law.

It will also assist Cambodia’s research and studies in military
and defence legislation and support the Cambodian Defence Ministry’s legal
department in developing its facilities.-VNA
