Hanoi (VNA) – Vietnam appreciates Cambodia’s decision to annul diplomatic note 698 MFA.IC/API on restricting cross-border travel between the two countries, Foreign Ministry spokesperson Le Thi Thu Hang said at the ministry’s regular press briefing on July 2.

Cambodia’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation notified the Vietnamese Embassy of the termination of the validity of the March diplomatic note on June 22.
