MOSCOW, March 1. /TASS/. Hor Namhong, Deputy Prime Minister, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of the Kingdom of Cambodia will pay a visit to Russia on March 2-4, the Russian Foreign Ministry said on Sunday.
Hor Namhong will come to Russia at the invitation from Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov.
"At the upcoming talks, Sergei Lavrov and Hor Namhong will discuss the present state and further development of bilateral cooperation and will discuss international and regional topics," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"A very important component of the bilateral relations is the mutual coordination of efforts in the framework of the United Nations Organisation," the ministry said. "Russia and Cambodia have similar or close positions on many current issues of the global agenda, and first of all in formation of the new security and cooperation architecture in the Asia-Pacific region."
The countries are developing trade and economic relations, where the leading role belongs to the Russia-Cambodia intergovernmental commission on trade, economic, scientific and technical cooperation. Cambodia’s foreign minister will take part in the 8th meeting of the commission during his visit to Russia.
"As of 2014, the trade turnover between Russia and Cambodia made $132.7 million, where the Russian export made $3.8 million," the Russian Foreign Ministry said.
"We have potential for developing business and investment cooperation in the energy, mining and processing of mineral resources, in agriculture, civil aviation, telecommunications and tourism," the ministry said. "We are undertaking measures to expand cooperation in education and in cultural and academic exchanges. Presently, about 100 students from Cambodia study at Russian universities."
"Cambodia has been attracting more and more Russian tourists - in 2014, over 130 tourists from Russia visited the country," the foreign ministry said.
