Film featuring history timeline of China-Cambodia friendship premieres

A documentary film titled The History Timeline of China-Cambodia Friendship premiered in Phnom Penh, aiming at further deepening cultural and people-to-people ties between the two countries, officials said.

The film was jointly produced by the China Intercontinental Communication Center (CICC) and the National Television of Cambodia (TVK).

The 80-minute film, dubbed into Khmer and Chinese languages, was divided into two episodes, depicting the history timeline of China-Cambodia relations as well as the present and the future of the relations.

Cambodian Deputy Prime Minister Yim Chhay Ly said the Cambodia-China friendship dates back to more than 2,000 years ago, and the two countries formally forged diplomatic ties in 1958.

He said the film was aimed at telling younger generations the excellent ties between the two countries, which have existed since ancient times, have continued to the present, and would continue growing stronger in the future.
