MELAKA, 7 MAY, 2011: Melaka and Cambodia hope to forge close cooperation in rehabilitating historical sites to strengthen bilateral relations between the two entities, Chief Minister Datuk Seri Mohd Ali Rustam said.
He said both Melaka and Cambodia had similarities in drawing tourists to visit historical sites especially after both were given recognition as world heritage sites (WHS) through the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (Unesco).
"They have longer experience because they had received WHS recognition since 1992 while Melaka received it in 2007 and as such, Melaka can learn from the experience of Cambodia through the WHS," he told reporters after receiving the visit of Cambodia's Deputy Prime Minister, Dr Sok An who made a one-day visit to Melaka today.
Mohd Ali said the state government would make an official visit to the country, that is famous because of the Angkor Wat, at the end of the year.
