Tay Ninh (VNA) – Leaders of police of the southern province of Tay Ninh and its three neighboring Cambodian provinces – Svay Rieng, Tboung Khmum, and Prey Veng – signed a cooperative pact on border crime prevention on March 28.

Under the document, the four localities, which share a border line, will continue information exchanges on border crime and joint work among their border forces.

The sides will join hands to facilitate local residents to travel for tourism, health care and trade in line with Vietnamese and Cambodian laws.

They will work together to ensure border security, plant border markers as scheduled, and tackle trans-border crime.

They are also committed to collaborating with other agencies to boost communications activities to raise public awareness on the matter.

In the past time, the sides carried out regular meetings to exchange information and discuss join action plans. They have thus far cooperated to investigate 11 cases, arresting four suspects and seizing over 16kg of drugs.-VNA
