China would like to enhance cooperation with Cambodia in areas including production capacity, investment, agriculture, and infrastructure, President Xi Jinping said on Friday.

The two countries should speed up signing the cooperative documents on Belt and Road initiatives proposed by China, and enhance people-to-people exchanges to benefit Cambodian people, Xi told visiting Cambodian King Norodom Sihamoni.

Leaders of the two countries should keep communicating with each other, Xi said, adding that the two sides should enhance a strategic dialogue.

China cherishes their special friendship with the Cambodian royal family, and attaches great importance to developing the relationship with Cambodia, and supports Cambodia to develop in accordance with the country's situation, Xi said.

Sihamoni is paying a two-day state visit to China on Friday and Saturday.

Sihamoni said that China is a great friend of Cambodia. The Cambodian side speaks highly of the friendship with China, which is cultivated by generations of leaders of two countries, he said.

The Cambodian king expressed gratitude to China's long-term support and help, and he agreed with President Xi's proposal of deepening Cambodia-China relations.
