PHNOM PENH — Vietnamese Deputy Foreign Minister Ho Xuan Son and Cambodian Senior Minister Var Kimhong have reviewed the implementation of an MoU on land border area adjustment signed between the two governments last April.
At their meeting in Phnom Penh from March 12-14, the two sides agreed to complete border demarcation and marker placement prior to the end of June.
The two sides will organise a State-level ceremony to inaugurate border marker No314, the final marker on the Viet Nam-Cambodia land border, in June, on the occasion of the 45th anniversary of diplomatic ties.
They agreed that most of the land border demarcation activities had been completed, however the two sides needed to further increase bilateral co-operation and make more efforts to fulfil the task and build up a file of Viet Nam-Cambodia border legal documents.
The documents include a protocol on border demarcation and marker placement, an agreement on border management regulations, an agreement on border gates and border gate management and a Viet Nam-Cambodia border atlas.
On the occasion, the two officials signed an agreement saying that the Vietnamese Government would provide financial support to Cambodia for the publication of the Viet Nam-Cambodia border atlas. — VNS
