The Vietnam Fatherland Front (VFF) and the National Council of Solidarity Front for the Development of Cambodia’s Motherland (SFDCM) convened in Kien Giang province on December 22 for the fourth conference on building a borderline of peace, friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries.

The event was to review two years of implementing a joint statement reached at the 2012 conference in Ratanakiri province, Cambodia, share experience in building the two countries’ borderline of peace and friendship between the two fronts and provinces sharing borders, and sign a joint statement detailing their 2014-2016 tasks.

Vice President and General Secretary of VFF Central Committee Vu Trong Kim, in his speech, was satisfied with the improvement of mutual understanding between locals living in border areas via cultural, music and sports events, since the joint statement on building a borderline of peace, friendship and comprehensive cooperation between the two countries was signed two years ago.

Both sides have joined in efforts to reduce poverty while combating cross-border smuggling and crushing plots to undermine their friendship, he said.

Min Khin, SFDCM Vice President and General Secretary, said the improving border issues are helpful to the maintenance of peace, stability and economic development between the two nations./.
