Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday vowed to address solutions to an ongoing dispute over the remaining 16 percent of the Cambodia and Vietnam border, yet to be demarcated, with his Vietnamese counterpart during his visit to Hanoi this weekend.
Mr Hun Sen said that during the visit, he and his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc will preside over the Review Conference on Cambodia-Vietnam Land Boundary Demarcation, which is expected to conclude with the signing of two legal documents to acknowledge the completion of 84 percent of the border.
“I will visit Vietnam and sign the documents to offer my recognition on the 84 percent of the land boundary demarcation work both countries have agreed on,” Mr Hun Sen said. “The new order maps have been printed in Denmark and arrived in Cambodia.”
“After years of certain effort since 2005 until 2016, there is only 16 percent of the border yet to be demarcated and we must continue to address it,” he added.
