Cambodia and China celebrate 61 years of diplomatic ties

Sixty-one years ago, the Cambodian-Chinese cooperation treaty was signed by late King Father Norodom Sihanouk and then-Chinese Premier Zhou Enlai, and both nations continued to strengthen ties and eventually established a ‘Comprehensive Strategic Partnership of Cooperation’ in 2013.

Every year in July, the two countries celebrate the anniversary of diplomatic relations, marking ties established on July 19, 1958. A bilateral meeting to discuss the ties between the two nations was first held in 1955 in Indonesia during the Bandung Conference, which was attended by His Majesty King Sihanouk.

Suos Yara, a member of parliament and CPP spokesman, on Wednesday said that Cambodia and China relations actually date back 2,000 years.
