Chenda Sophea also praised the progress in the historic ties between both countries, established at the diplomatic level on April 15, 1960, as well as the agreements and consensus reached in the exchange of high-level visits.

In thanking the decoration, the ambassador said she accepted it “on behalf of the heroic Cuban people, who have always had a close friendship with Cambodia,” and thanked the countless signs of support offered by this Indochinese nation to the noble causes defended by its compatriots.

Rodríguez Barrios, who ends his work here, was also received by the King of Cambodia, Norodom Sihamoni, an occasion that was conducive to taking stock of the state of bilateral relations, with progress in areas such as health, education, sports and agriculture, among others.

The president of the National Assembly of the Kingdom, Khuon Sudary, also held a meeting with the head of mission in which she highlighted the central role that Cuban and Cambodian women play in the construction of their respective nations.

Sudary called to continue expanding bilateral ties, especially in the legislative field, and ratified the commitment to continue accompanying Cuba in the fight to end the economic, financial and commercial blockade imposed more than six decades ago by the United States.

According to the Cuban diplomat, respect, admiration and the identification of common objectives of progress, despite the geographical distance, are hallmarks of the ties between her country and Cambodia.

These links also have a key historical component, Rodríguez Barrios stressed when meeting with members of the Association of Cambodian Graduates in Cuba, diplomats, sports collaborators and Cubans residing in the Kingdom on the eve of commemorating the 63rd anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic relations.
