PHNOM PENH, April 10 (Xinhua) -- The Cambodian edition of Chinese President Xi Jinping's book on the governance of China marked another milestone in China-Cambodia relations, a senior Chinese official said on Monday.

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen will preside over the release ceremony of "Xi Jinping: The Governance of China" on Tuesday at his office, the Peace Palace, in Phnom Penh, according to Jiang Jianguo, chief of China's State Council Information Office.

"This will be the first time that the book is translated into the Cambodian language, and it can serve as an experience for Cambodia in governance and administering the country," he said at a luncheon with Cambodian media representatives led by Cambodian Information Minister Khieu Kanharith.

"The Cambodian version of the book is a new testament to the fruitful relations and cooperation between China and Cambodia," he said.

The book contains 79 speeches, talks, interviews, notes and letters of the Chinese leader between November 2012 to June 2014. It was already translated into 16 languages and has a distribution of over 6.2 million copies around the world.

"Through this book, Cambodian readers will better understand President Xi's thoughts on China's development, domestic and foreign policies and response to the concerns of the international community," Jiang said.
