The military commanders of Vietnam’s southern Tay Ninh province and the military subregions of Cambodian provinces Prvey Veng and Svay Rieng have signed an agreement to enhance bilateral cooperation.

The signing ceremony took place on March 17 in Tay Ninh, and was observed by Major General Phan Tan Tai, deputy commander of Military Region 7, Vice Chairman of the provincial People’s Committee Tran Luu Quang, and Lieutenant General Inthon, deputy commander of the Royal Cambodian Army’s Military Region 2.

According to the terms of the deal, the two sides will enhance coordination in securing social order and safety along their shared border lines; combating and preventing crime; mutually supporting inland border demarcation; and searching and repatriating remains of Vietnamese fallen soldiers in Cambodia.

They agreed to increase cultural exchanges and sports activities, and facilitate trade for business people in the two countries.

A similar agreement is expected to be reached soon between districts within Tay Ninh and the Cambodian districts and cities that share the border line.-VNA
