PHNOM PENH, June 7 (Xinhua) -- Cambodian Foreign Minister Hor Namhong, chair of 2012 ASEAN, said Thursday that his three-day visit to the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) concluded with fruitful results for the bilateral ties.
"Through the visit, the bilateral ties between Cambodia and the DPRK will be better," he told reporters at the Phnom Penh International Airport when returning from Pyongyang.
During the visit, he met with the DPRK's Foreign Minister Pak Ui Chun and Kim Yong-nam, president of the Presidium of the Supreme People's Assembly.
Hor Namhong said Pak Ui Chun will visit Cambodia next month to join the 19th ASEAN Regional Forum.
Ouch Borith, secretary of state at the Foreign Ministry, told reporters on May 25 that Hor Namhong's visit in the DPRK was to lobby the country to return to the long-stalled six-party talks on nuclear program on Korean Peninsula. The six-party talks involves South Korea, the DPRK, China, Russia, the United States and Japan.
