The National Assembly today ratified the 1985 supplementary treaty and 2005 agreement on border demarcation between Cambodia and Vietnam to foster good relations and maintain peace along borders of the two nations.
110 CPP lawmakers voted in favour of the draft law on the 1985 supplemental protocol and 2005 agreement on border demarcation.
Hun Neng, chairman of National Assembly’s commission on Interior, National Defence and Public Function, said that the draft law is an important legal instrument for the management of land, people and farms along the borders.
“These are important documents to protect territorial sovereignty of the Kingdom defined as a borderline without any changes and to maintain a peaceful border, stability, friendship, cooperation and development in all sectors,” Mr Neng said.
In October, Prime Minister Hun Sen and his Vietnamese counterpart Nguyen Xuan Phuc signed two legal documents – a document to support a 1985 supplemental protocol and 2005 agreement on border demarcation, as well as a document to acknowledge the demarcations as legal documents.
Mr Hun Sen and Nguyen Xuan Phuc also ratified 84 percent of border demarcation work completed between the two nations.
The Kingdom shares a 1,270-kilometre border with Vietnam and the two nations have been demarcating it since 2006.
