In recent time, the relations between Vietnam and Cambodia have grown continuously, achieving a lot of giant results; the cooperation between two countries on economy, finance, security, defense, culture, education, tourism has been promoted and developed quickly... However, the relation between two countries still have existed disagreements, requiring time and efforts to resolve, especially in land border demarcation.
The opposing and reactionary forces in Cambodia are always using these disagreements to incite ethnic hatred, anti-government and split up the relation. To solve this problem, the leaders of the two countries have been trying to settle the disagreements to build trust and promote cooperation between the two countries in line with the motto of “good neighborliness, traditional friendship, and comprehensive and sustainable cooperation”.
The two countries have also seen important results in border demarcation and marker planting activities.
On December 26th Vietnam and Cambodia jointly held a ceremony morning in Duc Co district of the Central Highlands province of Gia Lai to inaugurate their border marker No.30 and the road connecting two checkpoints of the Le Thanh-O Za Dao international border gate.
Prime Minister Nguyen Tan Dung and his Cambodian counterpart Hun Sen attended the ceremony, marking the third time of their presence at such the event, and reflecting the two Governments’ determination and efforts to enforce their reached treaties and agreements on territorial boundary.
“The inauguration of marker No.30 and the road connecting two checkpoints of the Le Thanh-O Za Dao international border gate, together with the inauguration of marker No.275 in the afternoon mark the Vietnam-Cambodia Joint Committee on Land Border Demarcation and Marker Planting’s completion of defining and building all key markers at 10 international border gate pairs along the two countries’ borderline, and its nearly 90 percent completion of border delimitation and border marker planting along the joint borderline,” Dung said.
It will also help facilitate border management and cooperation in all fields, particularly economics, trade, investment and tourism between Gia Lai and Rattanakiri provinces and the two countries at large, he added.
For his part, PM Hun Sen affirmed that “today’s remarkable historical achievement will contribute to turning a clearly defined border area of the two countries into a region of peace, friendship, comprehensive cooperation and development, thus serving the two peoples’ peaceful and prosperous lives.
The inauguration of border markers over the past years has confirmed the nations’ efforts to carry out measures synchronously to handle border-related issues as soon as possible.
He reaffirmed that the Cambodian Government is consistent in maintaining its stance of building the shared borderline between Cambodia and Vietnam into a clear and concrete borderline on the basis of national and international law.
It will do its utmost to, together with the Vietnamese Government, turn the borderline on maps into border markers in the fields, he added.
In the foreseeable future, he added, both sides will work closely together to delimit boundary in remaining areas in the principle of abiding by international law, especially border delimitation treaties.
The inauguration of the two border markers is of significance as it affirms the soundness of the nations’ border demarcation and marker planting as well as their leaders and people’s determination to complete the work soon, thus contributing to consolidating and enhancing the bilateral time-honored friendship./.
