This will be the first-ever visit of an Indian Prime Minister to Palestine and during his visit, he will hold discussions on matters of mutual interest with their leaders. While Modi was scheduled to speak at 11:15 pm, some CEOs were seen arriving as early as 9:30 pm and were waiting, though they knew the door will be opened only by 10:15.
"He (Hun Sen) also specifically referred to the role of (then Indian prime minister) Indira Gandhi when she returned to power in 1980 to recognise the regime change in Cambodia and to assist in the restoration of peace and rehabilitation there", Sharma said.
The MoUs were signed after delegation-level talks between Prime Minister Narendra Modi and his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen in New Delhi.
"We are committed to deepen our relationship with Cambodia", said PM Modi. He was asked whether the long-pending issue of Palestine figured in the talks between the two prime ministers. Mr Modi said, there is a scope of further expanding trade ties between the two nations.
"India and Cambodia share a special relationship which is rooted in history, India being the first country which recognised the Independence of Cambodia in 1953".
