Cuban Ambassador to Cambodia H.E. Ms. Liurka Rodríguez Barrios has reiterated the cooperation, friendship and diplomatic relations between the Republic of Cuba and the Kingdom Cambodia established since April 15, 1960. In her interview with the National Television of Cambodia (TVK) this morning, H.E. Ms. Liurka Rodríguez Barrios said these relationships have passed all tests. “Even geographical distance has not been an impediment. These ties have been one of the legacies of the historic leader of the Cuban Revolution, Commander in Chief Fidel Castro Ruz, and King Norodom Sihanouk. Both were also founders of the Non-Aligned Movement and their ideas of progress, peace and justice contributed to mutual respect and admiration,” she said.

The Cambodian People's Party has successfully guided the destiny of that nation, succeeding in maintaining peace, leading the process of national reconciliation and leading with certainty the reconstruction and development of the country. Cuba and Cambodia highly value the defense of national sovereignty and independence, not only because of the countless lives and sacrifices that its conquest has cost; but because it defines our right to self-determination.
