PHNOM PENH: The Foreign Ministers of Cambodia and Brunei have exchanged letters of congratulation on the 30th Anniversary of the Establishment of Diplomatic Relations Between Cambodia and Brunei, pledging to further strengthen cooperation.

On Monday, 6 June, the Foreign Minister of Brunei, Dato Erywan Pehin Yosof, sent a letter addressed to the Cambodian Minister of Foreign Affairs, DPM Prak Sokhonn, expressing his satisfaction over Brunei's relations with Cambodia, which has seen significant progress on the bilateral level, particularly in matters related to trade, education, technical assistance, culture, youth and sports. The Brunei Foreign Minister said he welcomes any further opportunities to enhance these important ties, including through the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Bilateral Consultations, on a mutually convenient date.

He wrote, "I am confident that our personal friendship and cooperation will continue to strengthen in the coming years, and wish you continued success in all your preparations as the ASEAN Chair for 2022 and Special Envoy of the ASEAN Chair on Myanmar. With my kindest regards and very best wishes to you and your family for continued good health, happiness and success.”
