Cambodia, Vietnam sign visa agreement
Cambodia has signed a visa exemption agreement with Vietnam for ordinary passport holders during an official visit led by Prime Minister Hun Sen to Hanoi this week, Kyodo news agency quoted a senior government official as saying Saturday.

Foreign Minister Hor Namhong told reporters Cambodia has similar agreements with Singapore, Malaysia, the Philippines and Laos.

Following his official visit to Vietnam on Tuesday and Wednesday, Hun Sen also participated in regional meetings among Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam on economic cooperation.

Among those meetings was the 3rd ACMECS Summit where the five neighbouring countries discussed implementation of Single Visa Scheme on Friday to facilitate entry into five southeastern Asian countries including Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Thailand and Vietnam.

ACMECS is short for Ayeyawady-Chao Phraya-Mekong Economic Cooperation Strategy. Ayeyawady, Chao Phraya and Mekong are three mother rivers that culturally and historically unify these five countries in heart of Southeast Asia.

Those talks ended late Friday.
