Dak Nong (VNA) – The Military High Command of the Central Highlands province of Dak Nong and the military sub-region of Cambodia’s Mondulkiri province signed the third memorandum of understanding on cooperation on April 20.

The signing took place at the third bilateral talks held in Gia Nghia township of Dak Nong province.

Accordingly, the two sides pledged to intensify cooperation in line with the motto “sound neighbourliness, traditional friendship, comprehensive cooperation and long-term sustainability”.

They will continue joint patrols along the shared borderline and facilitate border demarcation and border marker planting. Both sides will also strengthen collaboration in fighting drug crimes, smuggling and illegal forest product transport and exploitation.

Dak Nong and Mondulkiri are set to step up cooperative relations, exchanges and pairing between their border communities.

They said the two sides made strides in military cooperation in the latter half of 2016 and the first quarter of 2017. They have foiled many dangerous and organised crime activities. Border patrols and the protection of border markers have also been carried out well.

The Military High Command of Dak Nong has also visited Mondulkiri to offer greetings and gifts on traditional festivals and supported the Cambodian province with equipment, house building expenses and medical aid for the poor.-VNA
