Cambodia, Vietnam maritime issues still unsolved: Hun Sen


Cambodian Prime Minister Hun Sen yesterday said the maritime boundary between Cambodia and Vietnam has not been solved but that Cambodia had lost its claim to Koh Trol.

"Accusations have been made that Cambodia has lost 10,000 square kilometres of sea to Vietnam," he said during a marathon five-hour address to the National Assembly.

"In fact, however, the maritime boundary with Vietnam has not yet been determined and not a single drop of seawater has been lost to Vietnam."

To determine the maritime boundary, Hun Sen said Cambodia’s position was to use the Brevie Line, a line drawn up in 1939 by Jules Brevie, the French governor of Indochina.

By using the Brevie Line, however, Cambodia lost its right to claim Koh Trol, a large island off Kampot now known as Phu Quoc which has been administered by Vietnam since 1939.

Hun Sen said Cambodia had maintained its position to use the Brevie Line to determine the maritime boundary with Vietnam since the King Father ruled Cambodia in the 1960s.

In 1964, he said, the then Prince Norodom Sihanouk used a map with the Brevie Line for the international community and Vietnam to recognise its maritime boundary.

Hun Sen added that the King Father had tried his best to protect Cambodia’s territory.

This year in Thailand-what next?

AseanAffairs   04 January 2011
By David Swartzentruber      

It is commonplace in journalism to write two types of articles at the transition point between the year that has passed and the New Year. As this writer qualifies as an “old hand” in observing Thailand with a track record dating back 14 years, it is time take a shot at what may unfold in Thailand in 2011.

The first issue that can’t be answered is the health of Thailand’s beloved King Bhumibol, who is now 83 years old. He is the world's longest reigning monarch, but elaborate birthday celebrations in December failed to mask concern over his health. More
