GORKI, May 17. /TASS/. Russian Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev is holding a meeting with his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen in Gorki residence outside Moscow on Tuesday to discuss bilateral cooperation.
"We are very glad that you have come for a visit and we plan to discuss with you all issues of the Russian-Cambodian cooperation," Medvedev said opening talks with Cambodia’s prime minister.
Medvedev reminded that recently Cambodia and Russia marked the 60th anniversary of establishing diplomatic relations.

He said last year’s visit of Medvedev was historic, stressing that this was the first visit of Russia’s prime minister to Cambodia. "After your visit we established very close ties," Hun Sen said.
The talks later continued behind closed doors.
