Hanoi (VNA) - Vietnam and Cambodia on July 28 agreed to maintain the strict implementation of signed agreements on border and border marker management, and step by step solve the remaining work of their land border demarcation and marker planting.

The consensus was reached during an online meeting between Nguyen Minh Vu, Vietnam’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs, Chairman of the National Border Committee and Chairman of the Vietnam-Cambodia Joint Committee for Land Border Demarcation and Marker Planting, and Var Kim Hong, Senior Minister in charge of border affairs and Chairman of the Cambodia-Vietnam Joint Committee on Border Demarcation and Marker Planting.

At the event, the two sides expressed their delight at the fine development of the bilateral relationship despite impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic, affirming that the governments and people of the two nations have provided each other with valuable and timely assistance to cope with the pandemic.

In addition, the two countries’ border agencies and localities have closely coordinated to implement two legal documents recognising the completion of about 84 percent of the Vietnam-Cambodia land border demarcation and marker planting workload, which were signed on October 5, 2019 and took effect on December 22, 2020.

Both sides also agreed to make good preparations for a meeting between the two Chairmen of the Vietnam-Cambodia and Cambodia-Vietnam Joint Committees for Land Border Demarcation and Marker Planting in the coming time, and find flexible forms of exchange to well solve border issues, thus helping to consolidate and build a Vietnam-Cambodia
borderline of peace, stability, friendship, and cooperation for sustainable development./.
