Cambodia boundary demarcation underway

(23 July 2014)

The majority of Cambodian boundaries with Vietnam and Laos have been demarcated, according to Keo Piseth, a spokesman for Cambodian Parliamentary President Heng Samrin. Piseth estimated that the 1,270-km boundary between Cambodia and Vietnam was over 80 percent demarcated, and the 540km boundary with Laos was over 75 percent demarcated.

Delegations from Vietnam and Laos visited Cambodia to attend a conference on the Cambodia-Laos-Vietnam Triangle Development Area in July. At the meeting, Cambodian National Assembly president stated that Cambodia would prioritize “further enhance[ing] ties between Cambodia and the two countries for mutual benefits.”

Boundary demarcation between Cambodia and Thailand to Cambodia’s north and west has slowed due to border disputes and domestic turmoil within Thailand, Xinhua news agency reports.
