Speaking at the ceremony, Vietnamese Ambassador to Cambodia Nguyen Huy Tang emphasized the great sacrifices of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers and experts in exchange for the revival of the Cambodian people, escaping from the catastrophe of the Pol Pot genocidal regime.
Leaders of Military Region 5, the Royal Cambodian Army, paid tribute to those great sacrifices, using the area of the campus of the Battambang Provincial Military Sub-Region to build the house.
Ambassador Nguyen Huy Tang acknowledged the noble gesture of Metfone Cambodia Corporation and MB Bank branch in Cambodia for funding the project.
Up to now, the militaries of the two countries have established 11 teams to search and repatriate the remains of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers and experts. Their remains need to be preserved solemnly before returning them to their motherland.
The construction of the house for memorial and preservation of the remains of Vietnamese volunteer soldiers and experts not only shows the spirit of gratitude of the leaders and employees of Metfone Corporation, MB Bank branch in Cambodia and Military Zone 5, Royal Cambodian Army, on the upcoming Invalids and Martyrs' Day (July 27), but also a practical activity on the occasion of Vietnam-Cambodia celebrating 55 years of diplomatic relations./.
