PHNOM PENH, Dec. 22 (Xinhua) -- Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping met Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni here on Tuesday to discuss bilateral relations.

Cambodia had always firmly supported China on issues relating to its core and major interests, and was a good neighbor, friend and partner to China, Xi said.

It was the Chinese and Cambodian peoples' wish to further cement and develop the friendly cooperative relations, which served the fundamental interests of both countries, and was conducive to regional peace, stability and prosperity, Xi noted.

Sihamoni said China and Cambodia currently enjoyed a good relationship and had close cooperation in many fields. He believed Xi's visit would further promote friendship and cooperation between the two nations.

The Cambodian king thanked China for its long-term help to his country, and spoke highly of China's achievements on both domestic and international issues.

Cambodia was willing to further develop the unity and friendship with China, and to see friendship growing between the two peoples.

Xi also attended the opening ceremony of the Confucius Institute in Phnom Penh on Tuesday.

Cambodia is the last leg of Xi's four-nation tour, which has also taken him to Japan, South Korea and Myanmar.
